OUR 62nd WINNER OF 2020: NO NAY BELLA, trained by Marco Botti and ridden by Harry Bentley: 'The Unibet Casino Deposit £10 Get £40 Bonus Fillies' Handicap' over 1m 3f at Kempton.
Trying 1m 3f for the first time, Harry steadied her from the start and they sat towards the rear, as the pace was a slow one. He began to nudge her forward 3f out, and turning in the pair really started to wind it up. There were nervous moments as her rail position could have given traffic issues, but at the cut away she really rallied, going second 1f out, catching the leader and leading inside the final furlong, keeping on well to win by 2 1/4 lengths.

It was a smooth ride by Harry! Thank you to Kempton for looking after our owners - pictured enjoying their post race champagne and having a lovely framed photo to take home with them.

Syndicate manager Tim says: “Being a 2yo novice stakes winner and 3yo Polytrack winner by the sire sensation, No Nay Never, will make her a valuable broodmare prospect when she retires. However, the authority with which she won, up in trip, suggests there could be plenty more to come on the track. You couldn’t rule out her developing into a black type filly, at this stage. Well done to her owners and thank you to Marco for yet another win by a filly for us!”
No Nay Bella was our 6th winner with Marco this year, with a 29% win and a 53% top three strike rate. We have added an OASIS DREAM yearling filly with Marco for next year. You can read about her here: https://www.middlehamparkracing.net/horses/view,oasis-dream-ex-iridescence-filly_374.htm
