ILLUSIVE BACK ON TRACK
Whilst Doncaster does not quite have the glamour of Deauville, as alway's this year’s sale proved to be fiercely competitive. After two days of hard work, I was pleased to secure three precocious types by Kodiac, Helmet and Camacho. Thankfully there's now a short lull in the season before the Sales start again in mid September.
Saturday see’s Illusive head back to Goodwood, I had pointedly not ran him since his Glorious Goodwood win as the conditions of this race are near identical, Marc Monaghan who was successful last time retains the ride and can take a handy 3lb off, now back against professional jockeys. Illusive handles the track in good form and with the rain having missed the south coast, I’m hopeful he can be competitive once again.
