CAMBRIDGESHIRE winner Bronze Angel could step out of handicap company for the first time in the Darley Stakes on Saturday.
Marcus Tregoning’s rapidly improving three-year-old has gone from strength to strength this season and may return to the Rowley Mile for the Group 3 which is also run at Newmarket over the same distance.
Tregoning said: “There is a possibility Bronze Angel could run in the Darley Stakes.
“He is going to do one more bit of work and then we will decide. He’s coming off a good win so he may well go there.”
At Ayr today Amy Ryan can boost her chances of landing the Apprentice Jockey’s crown by winning the first two races on the card.
Ryan has a number of fancied rides for her father Kevin, who has always been a man to fear at the Ayrshire track.
His horses have always tended to perform better with cut in the ground and the heavy conditions should be right up the street of Al Thumama in the Giles Insurance maiden stakes (2.10).
Two decent warm-ups should have the two-year-old spot on to claim the opener.
The same trainer/jockey combination also have an excellent chance in the second (2.40) with Delores Rocket.
The youngster’s stamina really came into play when winning last time out at Pontefract and he should be able to defy a 6lb penalty. Rothesay Chancer (3.40) is another who will be right at home in the boggy conditions.
Jim Goldie’s charge ran a blinder at the Gold Cup meeting when finishing fourth in a competitive handicap.
The four-year old creeps in at the bottom of the weights and will not get a better opportunity to open his account for the season.
Meanwhile, tomorrow’s fixture at Newton Abbot has been abandoned due the track being waterlogged.
