Juveniles off the mark as Dancing Warrior leads the way at Chepstow
on 23 August 2018

William's first juvenile winner of the season came today courtesy of Gordon Roddick's hombred War Command filly, Dancing Warrior. 

Having produced two encouraging runs at Newbury and more recently at Glorious Goodwood, it was no surprise to see her run well today. The going was slightly easier than she had experienced before, but she handled it well and was given a strong ride by Luke Morris. Drawn on the far rail, Dancing Warrior led her group as the field split. She kept to her task well beating Richard Hannon's K Club by just under a length. 

We are delighted for her owner Gordon Roddick who has been a longstanding supporter of the yard. William has trained two of the family, in Compton Park and Dance Company and we hope that he has another nice horse on his hands with Dancing Warrior.
