Racing: Bradley looks beyond Betrutti

GRAHAM BRADLEY looks likely to postpone his retirement even if he wins the West Berkshire Racing Club Handicap Hurdle at Newbury today on Senor El Betrutti.

The jockey and bloodstock agent, who rode in Ireland at the weekend before flying to Rome to see one of his purchases, Eton, finish seventh in a Group Two race, has said he will call it a day after riding a winner.

But when asked if the ride on Senor El Betrutti could be his last, he said from Rome yesterday: "Well I don't know. I will see how I feel as I pass that winning post."

Bradley appears likely to be in action at Cheltenham at the weekend. His agent Dave Roberts explained: "He will ride Alpine Gale in the novices' chase on Friday if it runs.

"When you are working off the five-days entries you just can't say that is the end, because if he got beat tomorrow, he will still want other rides".
