I was really delighted with Genki's run in the Abernant yesterday, he has been so lazy in his work at home with most of my sprinters leaving him trailing behind. Luckily when he gets to the races he wakes up and I thought that Steve rode a good race allowing him to free wheel down the hill before launching him in the final furlong. His next race is likely to be The Duke Of York at their May meeting.
Our runners today at Newbury are all in good shape. Tioman Legend has his first start in the 1.35 pm race, he is a very solid well made colt by Kyllachy who is out of a Dansili mare who is a half sister to some speedy horses including Welsh Emperor, Majestic Times and more recently Brave Prospector.
Federation runs in the Bridget Maiden Fillies Stakes at 2.40pm, she is a half sister by Motivator to the brilliant Attraction, she has been showing promise and will be suited by going up in distance to 8 furlongs after this race.
Al Kazeem runs in the 4.25 pm a mile and a quarter Condition race for three year olds. He is a lovely looking son of Dubawi with plenty of size and scope who should be suited by todays distance and I hope will have a future in better races during the season.
Run For The Hills
Run For The Hills runs in the 5 furlong handicap at 4.55pm. It is fair to say he has been a little disappointing for us so far, but he has had a wind operation and he was gelded during the winter. His next likely race will be in Singapore as he is due to leave us at the end of next week
