BILLERICAY BLUE continued his successful return with an impressive performance at Central Park on Sunday evening.
Blue romped to victory in the Champion Hurdle heats, following up a winning start at Crayford Stadium a fortnight previous.
Owned by Billy McMahon and Nick Hutt from the Billericay Town FC consortium and trained by Jim Reynolds – Blue will now line-up at the semi-final stage, again at Central Park, on Sunday, July 26, with the first three qualifying for the £8,000 final.
Speaking to Yellow Sport, Reynold explained: “We have every confidence in our dogs’ ability. He’s won over four and six bends and now over hurdles. My only concern is the draw on Sunday but hopefully, he can qualify for the final next week.”
