Yes Yes Yes Bella!
OUR 70th WINNER OF 2020: NO NAY BELLA, trained by Marco Botti and ridden by Ben Curtis: The feature race 'Unibet New Instant Roulette Handicap' over 1m 3f at Kempton.
She returned to the Sunbury-On-Thames track after winning over the same 1m 3f trip on November 2nd. This time, she was up 5lbs and against the boys, but she repeated the feat of finishing strongly to pass the field in the home straight. Ben asked her for an effort and she went second just over 1f out and went on to lead in the final 110yds, running on well to win by a length.
Timeform have given her a rating of p90+ and say "Improved again and followed up her recent C&D success in similar style, going further clear of her rivals at the line; in touch, travelled well, ridden from 2f out, stayed on to lead last ½f, asserted final 50 yds; she's sure to be of interest on her hat-trick attempt."
She was the Racing Post 'Star performer' too: "No Nay Bella dug deep to land the feature race and further enhanced her fine course record."

Syndicate manager Tim says: “The daughter of No Nay Never is progressive and 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. Congratulations to her owners on their third win with her. Well done to Marco and his Prestige Place team for yet another win by a filly for us! It was super to bring up winner number 70 in what has been a difficult year for everyone. We're lucky to have a some super runners coming up in the next few days and our owners will have plenty to cheer on. With the announcement that crowds will be permitted back to selected racecourses is great news too.”
