On Wednesday evening we were delighted with the effort shown by COMPRISE. He made all of the running and when asked for his effort he appeared to win with a bit in hand. He has plenty of natural speed and seems suited by front-running tactics. He is in again this week and hopefully will go close again.
On Friday we headed to Haydock with JE SUIS CHARLIE. He raced keenly in a prominent position and when asked for his effort he could not sustain his challenge. It looks as though the race had come a bit too soon for him.
On Saturday we started the afternoon off at Haydock where FABRICATE was taking his chance. Held up towards the rear, he made some headway on the outer and then had every chance over one furlong out, He looked one paced ridden and will appreciate a step back up in trip. Later on the card HART STOPPER scored under a typical Jamie Spencer waiting ride. Still last at halfway stage, he made good progress when asked for his effort scored nicely. At Leicester we expected a better effort from WONDER OF DUBAI who had worked nicely with RONALD R on the Wednesday. He travelled for the first part of the race and when asked for his effort he did not find a lot and soon dropped away. At Beverley we were delighted when JIVE TALKING got off the mark after some real consistent efforts. She looked to be travelling best, winning pretty much as she pleased and it is great to see her get off the mark. She is in the July Sales and looks capable of winning again. We rounded the day off at Nottingham with ICE DANCING. She was hooded for the first time and settled better than she had on previous occasions. She would have been better suited by a stronger pace, but it was a better effort than she has shown so far.
On Monday we head to Windsor where BECUNA takes her chance. It looks a tough little contest, but hopefully she will find her form and run well.
