07/12/2019 1st 5/2 – Sammy Bill – Oliver Sherwood Aintree

Top win for Oliver's improver. Original quote: "Sammy Bill - On his return run at Kempton Sammy Bill finally showed on the track what we have seen from him at home - but he has been and 'still is' a work in progress horse....Of course we were still delighted with that win. He’s got a huge long stride to him and he can be very keen, he had to be dropped right out last time to get him to settle and finish his race. Bill is potentially very well handicapped but this is only his second run over fences (apart from a point-to-point) and only the sixth race of his career, so obviously the main objective is to get around and to learn to relax - there will be more to come. Bill has been in cracking form since his last race, it’s amazing what a winner can do for a horses confidence, he’s normally a good ride at home but Kai has had to sit tight over the last couple of weeks. The horses are going well too so looking forward to a nice run."
