5-year-old gelding Botox Has is a son of the French Derby winner Dream Well out of Bournie, a dual winner over Cagnes-sur-Mer’s obstacles, sired by Epsom and Irish Derby winner Kahyasi.
Bred by Carlos José de Souza Pedro’s famous Hamel Stud (the “Has” suffix), in Normandy, Botox Has started his career for his breeder at leading trainer François Nicolle’s yard. He was prepared for one of the toughest 3-year-old Hurdle races at Auteuil, le Wild Monarch, and finished second to Kick Up. He was shipped to Gary Moore’s yard after that and after a fine start, was out ten months before his winning comeback this season. He failed three times since then but the dual-course winner has spotted a nice opportunity here, in the Coral Cup (Gr3), with a 143lbs-mark.
