215 Newton Abbot:

Benatar 4/1 Corals/Laddies

I think this is a decent price for Benatar as although he is wrong at the weights i reckon first time out is a good time to catch him, especially when opposing a Nicholls runner. Benatar won his first two races over fences and then was 3rd in the JLT at the Festival, this is lot weaker than that and if he can just get a bit of cover early on he will take some stopping on thsi track/ground.

Always best to back in running then you can see how they run! Sometimes get a bigger price, or usually the same!

Anyone see the Cornwallis Stakes at Newmarket ?

What a brilliant win by Sergei Prokofiev …… not so much that he won as he was favourite but the way the race developed

Basically he got trapped behind the whole field as they drifted over to the rail ….. with about two fulongs to go

The way he got out and ran through the whole pack was tremendous.

Classy win but i'm not sure if the Newmarket form will be that genuine with the wind gusting into their faces. Sergio Prokofiev was shielded and then made a run for it as they entered the dip. It was very impressive and a very good ride in my opinion. Hopefully he will stay at sprint distances next year or will he go to the States??

:ok

Not sure what they'll do with him … don't really associate Ballydoyle with sprinters. 

I wonder if they'll try him in a Guineas trial and if he doesn't stay have a season sprinting then off to stud if he's successful

I suppose Caravaggio from a year or two ago would be the template although he was probably a much better horse (well on what we've seen so far)
