On Monday we had declared NAM HAI to run at Windsor. It was his first outing on the racecourse and he was slowly away. He was pushed along at the three furlong marker and plugged away to finish midfield. He is sure to benefit from the run and a better show next time is expected.
Today we have declared the three runners at Nottingham and one this evening at Kempton. We start the action this afternoon with BOURBON PRINCE. He is a nice, big horse who is sure to come into his own in handicaps later in the season, but will probably just need the run. Later on the card ROCK OF LEON who is of a similar profile to BOURBON PRINCE will hopefully give a good account of himself. He looks in good shape after another winter under his belt and could shape up into a progressive horse this season. Our last runner at the track is PIAZON. He is a lovely looking individual who will definitely benefit from the run. He won at Redcar on his second career start and then followed that up with a decent run at Chepstow finishing behind a horse of Richard Hannon’s. We hope that he will shape up this year and will turn into an exciting prospect.
This evening we have declared BIG ORANGE to run at Kempton. He missed his intended start last time as he was not quite right. He looks to be back in good form and although a competitive enough contest he should be competitive.
Tomorrow we have declared INVOKE to run at Kempton. She has been doing some nice work at home and we expect a decent effort from her. She won on her second start at Catterick and appears to have wintered well. We expect a good effort from her.
On Friday we have declared FIERY SUNSET at Newbury. She is a filly that has always been liked in the yard and she certainly looks to have been working nicely at home. She worked well this morning on the gallops and on this evidence you would expect her to run well. In the evening we have declared SALTWATER CREEK at Wolverhampton. She has only the one career start under her belt and it is great to get her back on the track to see what she has to offer.
