Wayward Prince set to run at Wetherby Races on Boxing Day
WAYWARD PRINCE is likely to return to his beloved Wetherby Racecourse for the £40,000 William Hill Rowland Meyrick Handicap Chase on Boxing Day.
Hilary Parrott’s charge has made the frame in all four of his visits to the track and secured his biggest success over fences when capturing the Grade 2 Towton Novices’ Chase in February 2011.
The nine-year-old has filled the runner-up spot in last two renewals of the £100,000 bet365 Charlie Hall Chase and came fourth in the 2011 Rowland Meyrick Handicap Chase.
His latest outing at Wetherby saw him come within a neck of victory in the Charlie Hall when just beaten by Harry Topper.
Parrott, who trains in Gloucester-shire, said: “I will work him this week and, if that goes well, I will take him to Wetherby on Boxing Day. He likes good ground. It was beautiful ground when he was second in the Charlie Hall, so let’s hope it’s like that again.”
