WESTER LODGE returns to Wolverhampton tomorrow over 14 furlongs, the course and distance he was second over earlier in the year. He will be ridden by William Carson who claims a valuable 5 pounds off his back and has ridden him at home so knows the horse well. He must have every chance tomorrow of getting his head first past the post.
GENERAL ZHUKOV makes his handicap debut later in the day at Windsor. Ideally he would like good or softer ground but Windsor has the best available ground at the moment. He is running over a mile, a distance he has run well over before but he will probably get further in time. He didn't settle in his last race so he will be ridden more prominently this time and let him use his stride. He has a good draw, if he handles the track he does have the ability to run well.
On Tuesday GENEVA GEYSER runs at Warwick with blinkers on for the first time. He is a bit of a playboy and needs them to help him concentrate, he has worked well in them at home so hopefully they will have the desired effect on the track. He has the ability to run well and will be ridden by Micky Fenton who should suit him. There is slight concern about the ground as it will be fast, hopefully he will handle it OK.
Later on that evening ON CUE runs in the last race at Lingfield. She ran well over a mile at Southwell so hopefully 10 furlongs on the polytrack will suit her. The form of her last race is working out well. She is a very genuine filly who will always give her best.
