Thornton aiming to make most of Sedgefield trip
ROBERT THORNTON makes the long trip to Sedgefield for one ride, but it could be worth it given his record on Quinsman.
Thornton, based in Cheltenham, is two from two on the Caroline Bailey-trained six-year-old - other jockeys are six from 40.
Quinsman bolted up by 12 lengths under Thornton at the track last month, but has an extra furlong and a half to contend with today.
Flat turf racing in Britain comes from Ayr where the 3.10 has been abandoned. That means the 2.10 and 2.40 will be delayed half an hour.
Ann Duffied runs Sovereign Street, chasing a four-timer, in the track's feature at 3.40.
She said: "She's in good form having won her last three and we're very hopeful. We’ve been dying to run her over five furlongs and now she gets the chance to do that."
Action at Wolverhampton replaces Folkestone's fixture which was abandoned last week.
