The Group 3 Abernant Stakes
Newmarket stages day two of the Craven meeting and for sprint followers the Group 3 Connaught Access Flooring Abernant Stakes takes centre stage.
The going is Good and a 11 runners go to post including last saturdays Bet 365 Handicap winner Move In Time and this will be not only a step up in class for him but also another step up in his staying ability but fitness is assured in a race in which 90% of the contenders are making their seasonal return.
Move In Time beat Charles Hills 96 rated Shropshire by 3/4 of a length in that Handicap and he now meets another of that stables inmates in the shape of the 102 rated Angels Will Fall so Hills should have a good idea about his chances of beating him.
The Cheka goes well when fresh and Jimmy Styles who was second here last season are two others that should go well.
Jack Dawkins was ready for his debut run of the season and there's every reason to believe that Hawkeyethenoo will be just as forward for his seasonal debut for the same stable and he strikes me as being a good option to Move In Time as he looks sure to be able to outstay that rival.
