“We wanted to go to Cheltenham on New Year’s Day, but he was lame that morning but there wasn’t as much prize-money as today,” said Bellamy.
Warwick underwent an 8am inspection following overnight frost, with temperatures dropping to -2C.
Clerk of the course Tom Ryall said: “The weather and frost sheets were down in certain areas.
“The grass frost melted through the morning and we were pleased with what we saw first thing. We were quietly confident yesterday with the frost sheets down – but you never quite know.”
