Twitch picks up Listed honours

Twitch put a below-par effort at York behind her to take the Listed honours in the British Stallion Studs EBF Beckford Fillies' Stakes at Bath.

The four-year-old had been in the frame at both Listed and Group Three level before not sparkling behind Abingdon in the Galtres Stakes at York.

However, the Hugo Palmer-trained filly showed her true colours with a gutsy display over a mile and a three-quarters.

James Doyle brought her to challenge on the stands' side as the field fanned out all across the track in the straight.

Twitch (12/1) got on top in the final 100 yards to score by half a length from Vive Ma Fille.

Anzhelika was another three-quarters of a length away in third.

Doyle told At The Races: "Hugo was very pleased with her coming into this race.

"The race went to plan. We got a nice toe into the race. She quickened up and saw it out really well.

"The ground's getting a little bit poached and it's on the easy side.

"She was inclined to go towards the stands' side.

"It was fresh ground, she got her momentum going and I didn't want to hinder her."
