Another Gold Medal Looks Likely For Course And Distance Winner
Past performances do more than suggest that the Ian Williams trained BOY IN THE BAR has a distinct preference for all-weather surfaces and when combined with him wearing headgear produces a more than decent competitor. The seven-year-old has raced 35 times in total, gaining five wins and eight seconds, but looked to be getting disenchanted with the game in 2015 when transferred to Williams from Ed de Giles, after starting his career with Richard Fahey. After three dismal runs, Williams fitted blinkers and things picked up with wins at Newbury and Ascot, but it is when raced on artificial surfaces and with the blinkers or cheekpieces on that his form has become really impressive. When fulfilling those criteria his figures read 4,1,3,1, and 1. His last outing was in a Class 2 over course and distance in the middle of September and he got his head in front close home from Charles Molson in a very fast time, with previous winners War Glory and Maaward back in third and Fourth. Boy In The Bar is top on BTOPlus+ regular ratings and second on speed and the recipient of eight positives. AREEN HEART looks a worthy favourite and WAQAAS gets some nice stats, but the Boy's 9/2 looks attractive.
