After being tried over longer trips, Glen Shiel really found his feet in sprints. Winning a handicap before going on to win a group 3 and finally the 2020 British Champion Sprint Stakes.
He didn’t have the same level of success last season. The ultimate target for the season likely being to defend his British Champion Sprint crown but he found Naval Crown too much to handle and had to settle for 2nd.
His form has been lacklustre this season. Being beaten twice by Brad The Brief. In a conditions race and a group 2 at the Curragh. He’s best on soft ground and is unlikely to get that here.
