Colton in good form for Lingfield

Tuesday, September 12, 2006

COLTON remains in good form and runs in a competitive 10 furlong handicap at Lingfield today. He won his second race over this distance so the trip should not be a problem and the ground is fast which will suit him well. If he runs up to his best form he should be thereabouts again today.

POCHARD is trying her hand over 12 furlongs for the first time today but she should stay. Her half brothers have shown plenty of stamina on the racetrack and the way she has run to date suggests she will stay too. She was a good third last time out over 10 furlongs on the polytrack at Lingfield. The ground is a slight unknown, it is good/firm at the moment but James Eustace feels that if there was further rain there it may be in her favour.

CAVENDISH has been declared for Yarmouth on Thursday but only in the hope that there is a lot of rain between now and then. This is a prime example of why the 48 hour declaration time is not popular with trainers. The ground can change so much in 48 hours that it can be very difficult to have the horse declared for a race with ideal ground conditions. He is entered in a mile selling nursery but will only run if the ground does become soft. He has plenty of stamina so the trip should suit him.
