That's Dangerous missed the break unfortunately having sat down in the stalls and in a slow run race he had little chance of getting into a challenging position but he did well to be beaten less than 4 lengths. He will be suited by a mile in the future and the ground was probably a bit too fast for him yesterday. For most of Discovery Bay's race, things seemed to be going very smoothly and he was travelling well, but unfortunately he did not deliver as I would have hoped in the closing stages, so back to the drawing board. Primevere saved the day in great style getting her first and deserved success in a Listed race. She won in pleasing fashion and in the process demonstrated her determination and that she stays 10 furlongs without a problem. She is a tall, leggy filly and there surely must be better to come and I will be encouraging her owner, Mr Oppenheimer to keep her in training as a four year old. I don't plan on over racing her this year, but I will be looking for a 10 furlongs fillies Group 3 in the Autumn. She now holds two course records which is quite unusual having broken the track record as a two year old at Kempton and again yesterday. The previous Salisbury record was held by Zante in the same race in 1998 and she is the dam of Korithi and Top Offer who makes his debut tomorrow at Newbury.
Yesterdays prize takes our earnings so far this season to £470,000 which passes the totals achieved for the whole season in 2009 and 2010.
Todays runners:Zamarelle runs in the second division of the 7 furlong two year old maiden auction stakes. It will be fingers crossed again that she goes in the stalls aided by Gary Witheford and she should be suited by the current fast ground, more than the polytrack at Lingfield. She stays well and a mile will suit her in the future and I hope she runs well as she belongs to me.
Goldtrek seems to have fully recovered from the injury that she incurred having won at Epsom. She is suited by dominating her races, but she was a little disappointing the last time she ran at Salisbury but perhaps was forced into going too fast.
Cry Fury comes back after a long break having been troubled by sore shins and he drops back to a mile and a quarter this evening having been a little free in his last race at Haydock over a mile and a half. He should be suited by the small field today and he is a progressive three year old but unfortunately he started with a rating of 90 having won his maiden race at Kempton which in my opinion was rather harsh.
