Thursday Racing

Thursday sees Sirius Prospect return to the track at Newmarket in the Abernant Stakes over 6f and connections will he hoping that he performs better than he did first time out. He is said to be have been showing all the right signals at home and he is the horse with the most potential for improvement in the race and the course and distance should bring out the best in him. Last years winner Genki usually comes to hand early and Mayson and New Planet will also be on the scene having both already run well this season. However I feel that we must stick with Sirius Prospect to come good.
Also tomorrow we have Swilly Ferry running in the Class 4 handicap at 3.20 at Ripon on his second start for Dandy Nicholls. He is open to improvement with the sprint maestro and its a fact that Timeform have not been slow to notice as he has been included in their 50 to follow for the season. The race itself doesnt look as though it will take much winning.
Later in the afternoon Lucky Numbers has his first start for David O’Meara having been switched from Paul Green, 6f is his best distance and with the going reported as Good to Soft it should play to his strengths. He has in the past gone well first time out and with De Sousa riding he shouldnt lack for assistance from the saddle.
At Wolverhampton in the 6.05 Andrew Balding’s Black Cadillac has his 9th start having won by 3 lengths at Kempton last time out. He looks the improver in the field and with the stable in good from he should be able to overcome his 9lb rise inthe weights.
