Prior to this race, Fergal O’Brien was asked to explain why he was running Billy The Squid (IRE) here at Southwell on going described as Good, Good to Soft in places, having made the gelding a non-runner also at Southwell on 4 May 2021 on ground with the same official description.
The trainer stated that the previous race would have been Billy The Squid (IRE)’s first attempt at 2 miles and 4 furlongs on Good, Good to Soft in places ground which, in his opinion, might have stretched the gelding’s stamina but was happy for Billy The Squid (IRE) to take its chance on the same ground today having dropped back down in trip to 1 mile 7½ furlongs on this occasion.
Lucou (FR), trained by Micky Hammond, had failed to enter the Parade Ring.
Being satisfied that this was due a replacement girth being sourced, no further action was taken.
Time 4m. 2.20 secs, which is 6.07 secs slower than the course average on today's going
