Newbury return for Terms
Once-beaten Best Terms is likely to start her three-year-old season at Newbury later this month.
Winner of the Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot and the Lowther at York, the Richard Hannon-trained filly met with defeat only on her final start of the campaign, when fifth in the Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket.
Hannon’s son and assistant, Richard, said: “Best Terms is probably going to go to Newbury for the Fred Darling. She has wintered well and did a nice piece of work with Hughesie (Richard Hughes) a couple of weeks ago.”
Hannon junior also had news on promising colt Harbour Watch, who remains unlikely to make the line-up for the Qipco 2000 Guineas at Newmarket on May 5.
He said: “I’d say Harbour Watch won’t make the 2000 Guineas but hopefully there’ll be something later on, either the Irish Guineas or the St James’s Palace.”
