Superlative second Nebo out to rock and roll in the Richmond
Our classy juvenile Nebo will be in action in the Qatar Richmond Stakes (3.00) at Glorious Goodwood.
I think there’s quite a bit of rain forecast after racing on Wednesday, but I’m not too worried about that. I think 6f on soft would be right up his street.
He ran well from a bad draw in the Coventry and was second to Gustav Klimt, who is one of the favourites for the 2,000 Guineas, in the Superlative Stakes last time, so he’ll be in the mix if he brings his best.
Devil’s Cowboy, who runs in the Telegraph Nursery Handicap (4.10), has not been disgraced in some decent enough novice races and has done a couple of nice bits of work at home, but it’s not going to be easy winning a race like this.
I run two in the Victoria Racing Club EBF British Stallion Studs Maiden Fillies’ Stakes (4.45).
Coral Sea backs up quickly in the British EBF Fifinella Fillies’ Handicap (7.30) at Epsom.
She ran at Doncaster last week but looks good and has come out of it well. That was a step in the right direction and she didn’t have much luck. Her mother got 7f and she’s settling much better in her races, so she’ll give herself every chance of getting it.
