Billingsley wins the Cheltenham Preview Here In March Handicap Chase (Class 3) (0-130, 5yo+) (2m67yds) 2m½f on heavy ground under a superb front running ride from Liam Treadwell.
Deduct 42 yards. A good quality handicap chase and the 'right horses' came to the fore.
, well backed, made every yard of the running, gamely following up last month's Hereford novice handicap win off a 5lb higher mark. He jumped right at times, but put in a tremendous leap at the last when he needed it most. He's a real mudlover with all four of his career successes having come on heavy.
QUOTES: Conditions were ideal as wants two miles on soft ground and he's improved again from his last run. He jumps well and we always thought he was going to be a chaser. - Alastair Ralph, trainer
