ADAM KIRBY is back on board Spring Romance today at Windsor and if nothing else, his confidence will be sky high after a great ride and win on Harry Angel in the Darley July Cup on Saturday.
Solario Racing’s Zebedee colt is one of eight declared runners in the 6.50, a 6f novice and he is one of just three with previous racecourse experience. His debut in May was a rather tame one as he missed the break and was very green throughout. It was also at a time when Dean Ivory’s horses were not really firing with the usual May rape seed pollen having its typical deleterious effect on some of the stable runners.
However, Adam liked the colt and we are delighted he is back on board today. Eve Johnson Houghton has a worthy favourite in Running Cloud while Zyzzyva is an interesting newcomer for Robyn Brisland. We are looking for improvement from Spring Romance who should appreciate the step up to six furlongs.
Good luck to Solario Racing (Berkhamsted) whose owners will be out in force this evening.
