Michael Bell has no qualms about turning Wigmore Hall out again quickly in the Betfair Huxley Stakes at Chester on Thursday.

The Newmarket trainer reports the five-year-old to have recovered really well as the gelding returns to the fray just 11 days after finishing fourth behind Cirrus Des Aigles in the Prix Ganay at Longchamp.

“He didn’t really have a race in France last time. He lost a shoe and with the way things worked out he never really got racing,” said the Newmarket trainer.

“He came out of it jumping and squealing and he’s a five-year-old gelding, so why not let him run again quickly?

“The track should suit him and hopefully he’ll handle the ground all right.”

Glen’s Diamond lifted the Dee Stakes over the course and distance last year and returns to his happy-hunting ground fresh from a trip to Meydan, where he ran respectably in three outings.

“The ground will suit him, we’re happy with him, so hopefully he’ll run well,” said trainer Richard Fahey.

The North Yorkshire handler also runs Myplacelater, who also has course form having finished fourth in the Cheshire Oaks two years ago when trained by David Elsworth.

The mare is dropping back in trip after being well beaten behind Electrolyser over a mile and three-quarters at Nottingham last month.

Fahey said: “She’s been a little disappointing this year, but she didn’t stay last time and she won’t mind the ground.”
