Irish Guineas and Royal Ascot possible options for Billesdon Brook
on 07 May 2018
The 66/1 winner of the 1000 Guineas on Sunday could be heading for the Curragh

Richard Hannon is considering the Irish 1000 Guineas and Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot as possible options for Classic victor Billesdon Brook.

The daughter of Champs Elysees sprang a 66/1 shock as she improved markedly for her seasonal reappearance when fourth in the Nell Gwyn Stakes to lift the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket.

“The French Guineas was another option, but there is only one English Guineas,” Hannon was quoted on his website.

“She was very impressive in the last furlong as she really appreciated that trip.

“I was thinking that back in the days of Night Of Thunder and Sky Lantern, they both got beat in their respective trials and managed to bag a classic.

“We will need to come up with a plan now, obviously Ireland and Ascot are very high on the list. “
