News in Brief
‘She’s a joy to train’ – La Lune strikes for Henry Candy in Pinnacle Stakes
Henry Candy stated on Friday his Pinnacle Stakes hopeful La Lune would hate the ground and the best he could hope for was a place, but those expectations were exceeded in spectacular style as the five-year-old mare romped home to win at Group level for the first time. David Probert’s mount handled the drying good to soft ground and struck by a length and three-quarters over Cabaletta.
First course success for Henderson as Bowen impresses on Fugitives Drift
Nicky Henderson enjoyed his first winner at the Cumbrian track as Fugitives Drift landed the 2m1½f beginners’ chase under James Bowen. The Seven Barrows trainer had previously only saddled two runners at the course, the best of whom finished second, but Fugitives Drift justified 6-5 favouritism to make a successful debut over fences.
Next stop Coolmore as dual-purpose star Verdana Blue is retired
Grade 1 winner and top dual-purpose performer Verdana Blue has been retired, Nicky Henderson announced on Saturday. The nine-year-old was not pleasing the Lambourn trainer in the run-up to Royal Ascot, where Henderson admits he is unlikely to have any runners, and has been sent to Ireland to be covered at Coolmore.
RECENT LAMBOURN WINNERS
Temple BruerEd Walker
Temple Bruer looks magnificent and is in very good form. This looks a great opportunity for him and I think the trip will be ideal, the question mark will be the fast ground however I’m pretty hopeful he will handle it fine as he has won on quick ground before up at Doncaster.
Tenaya CanyonEd Walker
Tenaya Canyon looks fantastic and has come out of that slightly disappointing race at Lingfield very well. I think coming back in trip is what she needs and I think she is a filly with more to offer so I am looking forward to seeing her over this distance.
Barley FamousNicky Henderson
She has had a couple of really good runs over hurdles and is in good form at home so we are hopeful of a good run.
Reina Del MarEd Walker
Reina Del Mar looks awesome and I am really looking forward to seeing her step up in trip on better ground at Newbury. It looks a very winnable race aside from Sir Michael Stoute’s Zoffany colt who won very well last time when stepping up to a mile and a half for the first time. I am thrilled Oisin is riding and I am really looking forward to seeing what she has got over this trip.
