Bill set for International campaign
Belgian Bill is set to head on his travels as connections seek a Pattern win with their Royal Hunt Cup winner.
The five-year-old was a shock 33/1 winner of the Royal Ascot feature but has since finished down the field in the Bunbury Cup at Newmarket.
Trainer George Baker is now eyeing events such as the Grosse Europa-Meile on September 15 at Munich racecourse for the son of Exceed And Excel as he looks to boost the horse's chances of a stud career.
"He's got a few options in Germany. There's a Group Three in Munich and a Group Three in Dusseldorf, as well as a Listed possibility," he said.
"He's still an entire so in terms of a stud career, perhaps in Europe, we really need some black type so I think he will be on his travels.
"I think his mark here is tough enough and the Bunbury Cup just never really happened after his Hunt Cup win.
"Nothing went to plan and it was a furlong too short really."
