testing conditions in South West Wales The Bay Warrior ran a better
race, the best he has run on turf, always prominent, leading after the
turn in and just weakening in the last furlong; we shall probably look
to go back to aw, and preferably Chelmsford, with him going forward but
this was a better performance.
revelled in the conditions, looked the best horse in the race on paper
and in the paddock beforehand and ran like it in the race, always going best and could have won by further. Doubtless our good friend the OH will have a say and he will equally doubtless take into account that he was probably too lenient after the brill Leicester performance; a stiff five or an easy six is clearly ideal for the Mare, who is improving as she matures and strengthens; altogether a real pleasing performance.
Rebel Angel showed ability on her debut,
being keen enough early, decently placed on the turn in, going on early
in the straight before fading; she will significantly improve for the
run (as most of our two year olds do) and we might think about dropping
her back to six furlongs.
Conquest of Power was a non runner at
Kempton; the aim is to take him back to the straight five at Sandown
for a very good class and valuable Nursery on the 25th of August.
Bayston Hill again showed that he is almost
certainly more effective over slightly shorter; if ten furlongs is too
sharp for him as he has got older then thirteen furlong plus probably
does look too far.
Bird for Life ran a absolutely typical Bird
for Life race; not too much more to say really other than to look at
the evidence on the video.
We are looking
at running Ravi Road at Brighton on Friday afternoon; and Duly Amazed
and Rowdown Roza are both likely runners at Lingfield on Saturday.
