York's Big Sprint
June 16,2018

Saturday’s Pavers Foundation Catherine Memorial Sprint Handicap at York has been run under numerous titles over the years but the six furlong speed test for three-year-old’s has produced several past winners which have gone on to become champions over sprint distances including Cadeaux Genereux and Sheikh Albadou and the 2018 renewal looks well up to the usual high standard.

Thirty eight horses have been entered for the valuable handicap at Monday’s declaration stage headed by the 105-rated pair of Cardsharp and Roussel but it is the Andrew Balding-trained Foxtrot lady who is likely to take plenty of beating following a couple of impressive victories at Chester and Carlisle recently.

Available at 7-1 with several bookmakers including Ladbrokes, William Hill and Betfred the daughter of Foxwedge showed great promise as a juvenile without getting her head in front and it was a case of more of the same on her first two starts this season, finishing runner-up at both Salisbury and Doncaster. On the latter occasion on Town Moor the mount of David Probert was thrashed eight lengths by Equilateral but that form could turn out to be very smart as the winner is strongly fancied for the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot next week.

Ridden by 5lb claimer Jason Watson for the first time on her next start at Chester the combination hacked-up in what looked an open handicap and the pair were even more impressive on their most recent outing when giving weight and a comprehensive beating to some promising sprinters at Carlisle last week. A 7lb rise for that three and three quarter length win over Sir Dancealot looks far from harsh and with Watson’s valuable allowance they can land the hat-trick on Saturday afternoon.

Gabrial The Saint and Jawwaal are another two attempting to win for the third time running while the Kevin Ryan-trained Savalas is on a four-timer but Foxtrot Lady looks a talented filly going places and can continue her run of success.
