Trainer and jockey Rachel King once again combined to win successive Group 2 Villiers. Last year winning this time-honoured Randwick mile with Quackerjack and now in 2020 with stable sweetheart, Greysful Glamour (Stratum/Rippled).

This gentle mare jumped best from barrier 5 and took the lead. As per her usual pattern of racing, she held the lead throughout, kicking away at the 400m mark and headed for home. She managed to hold on, denying the fast-finishing Godolphin pair, Best of Days (Azamour/Baisse) and Criaderas (Lonhro/Youthful Presence) to grab victory.

Congratulations and heartfelt thanks to Darby Racing and their owners for a very special day. Following the win our Staff Christmas Party took place and we had an extra ‘merry’ vibe happening!
