Thursday’s Newmarket trainer quotes

Racing returns to flat headquarters this afternoon as Newmarket takes centre stage for the first day of the delayed Guineas meeting. There are six races comprised of unraced two-year-olds on the card which look interesting puzzles. To try and help solve them, let’s see what the trainers of some of the runners have to say.

1.15 Newmarket

Mick Channon, Mahale – “I think Mahale is a really nice filly and is a half-sister to that good horse Opal Tiara.”

James Tate, Sense Of Romance – She “goes nicely, she’s a filly I like so I’m expecting a big run.”

Richard Spencer, Wings Of A Dove – She’s “a nice Dark Angel filly. It’s a nice starting point over five furlongs and hopefully, she’ll run a good race, but whatever she does she’ll improve on. “

Marco Botti, Angels Will Rise – “She’s got plenty of ability even if she is a little bit small. She’s well balanced so I think she’ll handle the course well. We don’t know what we’re taking on but hopefully, she can run well.”


1.50 Newmarket

Mick Channon, Chattri – “Well-bred….work has been good and I’d say…fit enough to do herself justice.

Simon Crisford, Zamaani – “Worked to a nice level, but these are going to be tough contests.”


2.25 Newmarket

Charlie Appleby, Magical Land – “I particularly like the Frankel colt Magical Land. He’s from a family with natural pace.”


3.00 Newmarket

Hugo Palmer, Northbound – “Been ready for a little bit of time but we don’t gas our two-year-olds and they normally come on for the run. Been on the watered gallop so should handle the undulations.”


3.35 Newmarket

Charlie Hills, Give ‘Em The Slip – “I think quite highly of her. It’s hard to be massively confident as they’re going to be competitive races.”

James Tate, Risk Of Thunder – “ Is another filly I really like and she’s been going well at home.”


4.10 Newmarket

Richard Spencer, Ocean Eyes – She “has been working with Wings Of A Dove. We haven’t pressed any buttons with either and we’re looking forward to learning more about them.
