Wonderful Tonight Swerves The King George


Wonderful Tonight | Scoop Dyga

Christopher Wright's Wonderful Tonight (Fr) (Le Havre {Ire}) has been withdrawn from the G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Qipco S. at Ascot and will be pointed at Goodwood next week. With minimal rain hitting the Berkshire track, the G1 Prix de Royallieu, G1 QIPCO British Champions Fillies & Mares S. and G2 Hardwicke S. heroine was taken out as expected by David Menuisier. “When you train a soft-ground horse you always need a bit of luck with races in the middle of the summer,” he explained. “She's the filly of a lifetime with big targets in the autumn, so we've got to do right by her. We'd like to give Goodwood a go, and she's entered in the [G2] Lillie Langtry Stakes, so could run there.”
