As is the case for many trainers we have runners all over the place this weekend. Newmarket has been dealt with elsewhere so we start off at Ascot where Jack Regan runs in the opening race. He appears to have come out of his first run well and if he’s progressed from it should have a good chance. He looks really well at home.
Good old Jallota goes to Chester for a listed race. He had excuses at Ascot, and coughed afterwards. He’s since been treated to clear it up and looks back to his old self at home. He was second in a handicap at the track a couple of years ago so should handle it.
We send Cotai Glory up to York to run in the City Wall Stakes. He’s run well at York before, and as this isn’t as competitive as the races he has been contesting we’re hoping for a bold show.
In the evening we run a nice colt Groveman (by Holy Roman Emperor) at Salisbury in the evening. He’s gone well at home from day one, but is very laid back. The race will probably help him come on mentally more than anything else.
On Sunday Dutch Connection goes to Ireland to run in The Minstrel Stakes. He ran a really good race in the Queen Anne before he ran out of puff in the final furlong. His big aim is to retain his crown in the Lennox Stakes at Goodwood and this looks like a good stepping stone.
