Emphatic win for Ballard Down
on 03 May 2017

Ballard Down kept up the good form of the William Knight yard when scoring at Wolverhampton this afternoon. 

He raced prominently under jockey Harry Bentley, tucked in just behind the leaders. He travelled very strongly and responded well when asked to go and win his race. He lugged left slightly when he hit the front, but pulled well clear of the field under a hands and heels drive to win by almost 4 lengths. 

This was a very encouraging performance with some useful types behind him. Ballard Down raced today off an official mark of 85 and looks to have plenty more improvement in him. 

William is enjoying a fine run at the moment, with Ballard Down providing him with his 11th winner of the season so far. This boosted the strike rate to an incredible 31%.
