Gredley aiming for more summer success at July festival
Ronald R Michael Bell
Tim Gredley will be sporting the Big Orange colours, "but not the skin tight ones", on Bivouac in the Newmarket Town Plate next Thursday. Later the same day the Britannia Handicap second, who impressed on the peat moss gallop, is pencilled in for the Listed Sir Henry Cecil Stakes.
Tenzing Norgay Sir Mark Prescott
Prescott will soon be cutting the ribbon on a new office/tack room at Heath House, which may encourage the great man to send an email for the first time. This grey has a typical Prescott under-the-radar entry in an amateur riders' race at Bellewstown on Friday and will be fit.
Erdogan John Gosden
Attracted a lot of interest at the sales in 2015, as you would expect of a Frankel half-brother to So Mi Dar, but has been less high profile since. The Al Shaqab colt, a 750,000gns purchase, took another step towards a belated debut on the Limekilns on Tuesday.
Ship Of The Fens Martyn Meade
The Champs Elysees colt is named after Ely Cathedral, which is 12 miles from Newmarket and on a clear day can be seen from the Limekilns. The youngster showed enough in his work on the Al Bahathri to give Meade something to build on.
Great Work!!! Central Square Roger Varian
Varian threw a pizza party for the staff at Carlburg on Monday night following Nezwaah's Group 1 triumph in Ireland the day before and he could have further reason to celebrate judging by the way this useful handicapper went up the long gallop. Unlucky in running at Royal Ascot last time, the five-year-old is on course for the John Smith's Cup at York on Saturday week.
