Brotherton to train DBS April sale leading lot

ANDY OLIVER'S progressive handicapper West Coast Dream led the way early on at DBS’s April Horses In Training Saleon Thursday.

Worcestershire-based owner Emma Byrd signed for the four-year-old, winner of a 6f handicap at the Curragh 18 days ago, at £42,000.

"We thought we might have to pay a bit more and he’s going to Roy Brotherton," said Byrd.

Advertisement, a three-time winner for Jeremy Noseda, is heading to sunnier climes after making £36,0000. "He’s been bought for the same owners as Formosina and will probably head straight out to Saudi Arabia after quarantine," said agent Bertie Butler, who signed for the Mr Greeley colt.

Baharat, another member of the Noseda draft, is joining Richard Guest after making £36,000, while Donald McCain paid £35,000 for George Moore’s promising bumper performer Red Rocco.
