Iron Condor bids for Brighton Cup

Wednesday, August 8, 2012
IRON CONDOR heads for Brighton tomorrow to run in the valuable Brighton Challenge Cup over 12 furlongs. He is dropping back in trip but this should not be against him as he is a winner over this distance. The unknown is whether he will act on the traqck, if he can handle the undulations he should stay on up the hill at the finish. Hopefully he can bounce back to form after 2 quick runs on the polytrack. His last run came too soon after his previous race and we tried to make the running on him which didn't work. The 3 year olds, MAASTRICHT and VARNISH, look the ones to beat but he must have a chance on his best form. If the ground is good or slightly quicker it will be ideal for him. SAMBA NIGHT and FULNEY are both in action at Yarmouth. SAMBA NIGHT was disappointing over 5 furlongs last time so hopefully a return to 6 furlongs and wearing a visor will revive him. The ground should be good tomorrow which should suit him. FULNEY faces 6 rivals in the mile fillies handicap. The straight mile should suit her and she has been dropped to a mark of 75 which gives her a chance. She is a similar type of filly to VIKING ROSE, tough and genuine so should give a good account of herself tomorrow. There is a doubt obout her running if the ground remains soft but they are not expecting any more rain so the ground should be dry enough for her to run. SCOTTISH STAR completes the quartet of runners tomorrow. He heads for Sandown evening meeting. He has run well at Sandown before so the track will suit him, he was unlucky there and in his next 2 runs so is due a change of fortune. He is dropping back to 10 furlongs but he has won over this trip and this time we plan to make more use of him. The ground should be on the fast side of good which will suit him. He is capable of winning off his current handicap mark so let's hope he can get back in the winners enclosure tomorrow.
