Nottingham City Transport Novice Auction Stakes
Class 5 | 7f 14y | Standard | 6 Runners | Fibresand
Off time: 15:37 | Winning time: 1m 29.46s
Promising sort judged on his first run last December over 7f at Newcastle keeping on well to be nearest at the finish. Stable have made a good start to the Flat season; only question mark is the surface (by a sire with a poor record on Fibresand).
Two runs to his name so far although rather disappointingly he didn't go forward from his debut run although he looked a sharper tool second time up. Back to 7f now for his qualifying run facing a test on the Fibresand for the first time.
Lightly-raced maiden (four runs as a juvenile) and handed a stiff handicap mark for his nursery debut (ran poorly) on his final run last year. Ran his best race making his Fibresand debut over 6f wearing cheekpieces (first-time); not out of this.
Newcomer to the Fibresand from a yard who do well with their runners here. Well held on his only run so far over 7f at Redcar and a fair bit more to do here to get competitive; others appeal more.
Hooded for his debut at Newcastle over 7f in October he offered little after taking a strong hold. Steps out onto the Fibresand for the first time but likely to be a longer term project having had wind surgery.
Two runs last year as a juvenile with her debut over 7f at Thirsk showing little promise. Did a little better on her second start but in reality it's only poor form; now tries the Fibresand for the first time.
Cape Victory (1/3), Chance Of Glory (6/1), Ollivander (7/1), Parallel World (16/1), Secret Footsteps (25/1), Baby Maureb (33/1)
