Welcome to the first additions to our new eyecatchers service included free as part of your Cleeve membership. All horses will be added to a tracker and we'll send you an email when they run with a view on their chances on the day. Horses will be followed for their next three runs and we'll be keeping a P&L on their performance.
27th April, Leicester 14.15 - Birstall Novice Stakes (Plus 10) (Class 4) 5f, Good to Firm
2-y-o Bay Colt
Trainer – George Scott
Breeding – By Acclamation out of Sign From Heaven.
A chunky colt with a good sprint pedigree owned by the Gredleys. On his second run ever at Leicester on April 27th, this two-year-old got up by a short head, despite being very keen early and running green in this class four novice race. He landed the money as the favourite here under Harry Bentley and can step up again for his trainer, George Scott, who does rate him highly. We can look forward to him going up in class over sprint distances.
May 10th, Ascot 16.20 - Women In Racing Handicap (Str) (Class 4) 1m, Soft
3-y-o Bay Colt
Trainer – Clive Cox.
Breeding – By Rajsaman, out of a Teofilo mare.
Ran with promise at Ascot on May 10th on only his fourth run. beaten 4 1/4 lengths by Aweedream, but he stayed on well and wasn’t knocked around. Previously beaten on its turf debut by the well regarded Fox Chairman. He didn’t run as a two-year-old until the very back-end of last year so was either slow to come to hand or had a problem… he ran twice at Kempton on the all-weather and whilst showing signs of greenness, ran well in both those races.
All his runs have been over a mile, and Adam Kirby has stated that he holds Just The Man in some regard. I now expect him to go and win his maiden and then go forward into mile handicaps, where he will be competitive.
