Following horses that have developed a habit of missing the jump can be an expensive pastime and you take your chances. However, when they do get out on terms they can surprise, not that Bold Beauty surprised Duncan and owner Jimmy Sarkis at Greyville yesterday. Duncans comment before the race was, if she doesnt miss the break she will be right there, and so it proved.
With two short heads separating the first three home it was obvious that the start was going to be crucial to the fillys chances. But Mark Khan was wise to Bold Beautys antics and got her away smartly and gave her a confident ride.
