BORDEAUX BILL wins at Wetherby

Bordeaux Bill: a first victory over fences

BORDEAUX BILL appreciated the step up in trip taking the three-mile Novices’ Chase at Wetherby in good style under Danny Cook yesterday.

With two non-runners, just three went to post and Bordeaux Bill got a nice lead off Sharp Response for much of the race. Traveling strongly, he jumped into the lead four from home and soon put a couple of lengths between himself and the one time leader. Jumping the three remaining fences well he coasted home by nine lengths.

The six-year-old Craigsteel gelding, who runs in the colours of Mrs Julie Martin, was following up a good second at Market Rasen last time and was winning over fences for the first time.

Congratulations to Danny too who was riding his 100th winner for us!
