Simcock thinks Netscher could shine this season
DAVID SIMCOCK thinks 2015 could be Caspar Netscher's year to shine, with the trainer enjoying an uninterrupted build-up with the sprinter.
The six-year-old joined Simcock having proved subfertile at stud, and has already done well for the yard, winning the valuable Grade 2 Nearctic Stakes at Woodbine last October.
However, Simcock thinks there could be more to come, and speaking in Friday's Racing Post as part of the Stable Tour series, said: "I like to think this will be his year - it is the first time we have had a clear run with him.
"He was injured early last season and we had to rush him. The five furlongs and the ground were too fast for him in Dubai. The plan is to start him in the Duke of York Clipper Logistics Stakes over six furlongs on May 13 and he is in great shape.
"He will take in all the big sprints from there."
