NEXT WEEKS RUNNERS
I have 3 intended runners next week. Phosphorescence heads to Yarmouth where he runs off a mark of 72 in a 0-70. Although he has not run since his excellent victory under Joseph O’Brien, he has done plenty of work at home as he is predominantly used as a lead horse, the track and trip should suit and I look forward to a positive run.
All being well, Imperial State will be declared at Chelmsford. He has had a nice winter break and has strengthened up as you would expect. It’s hard for me to know quite how much he has improved over the winter, however I have been delighted with his recent work.
Road to Dubai could go to Doncaster on Saturday. He ran an excellent 5th in a hot handicap at Nottingham last week. He was just a little free early on, and I think the contours of Doncaster should suit him a little better.
