News in Brief

Clive Cox refusing to give up on Supremacy

Clive Cox has lost zero faith in burgeoning stable star Supremacy, but plans are on hold for the three-year-old after his disappointing display at Ascot on Wednesday.  “We’ve run a few tests and there’s nothing conclusive, so we’ll be keeping a watching brief,” said the Lambourn trainer. “A couple of figures on his bloods changed from his pre-race checks and we’ll know a bit more in a few more days. He’s still a good horse. That just doesn’t banish as it was too below par; it wasn’t like he finished second or third and was disappointing – it was way below.”

Ascot wants 10,000 racegoers each day for Royal meeting

Officials at Ascot have not given up hope of welcoming up to 10,000 spectators per day at the royal meeting next month, although they remain in the dark as to when a final decision on capacity might be reached.  Either way, they are confident at least 4,000 people will be allowed to attend, a figure that would include owners, hospitality box holders and members of the Royal Ascot Racing Club, as well as the general public.

Poetic Flare gives Bolger and Manning 2000 Guineas joy

Jim Bolger hailed Poetic Flare as “the most complete racehorse I’ve ever had”, with the 79-year-old trainer in ebullient mood after the homebred’s short-head success in the Qipco 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket.

Brummie Boys

Oliver Sherwood

Brummie Boys has been a disappointing horse, he has not physically changed since the day I bought him and he’s always looked on the weak side. Last time out we resorted to the blinkers in an attempt to sharpen him up because he’s so lazy in his races, he did a bit too much over three miles that day so I’ve dropped him back by half a mile today.
