Ventura Quest: sole runner at Newmarket today

Friday, October 31st, 2014

Four runners today; one at Newmarket this afternoon, three at Wolverhampton this evening...

Ventura Quest is first to post in the George Rogers Mobile Catering Handicap at Newmarket. Owned by Middleham Park Racing, the gelded son of Henrythenavigator drops back to 1m2f here as he bids to get his head in front for the first time this year. He’s run several good races, finishing in the frame on four occasions, most recently on his penultimate start when third at Chester. Paul rides this afternoon before heading north to Wolverhampton where he partners Johnny B Goode and Bleu Astral for us.

Johnny B Goode makes his all weather debut in the £20 Risk-Free Bet At Unibet Nursery Handicap. Owned by Jonathan Gill, the gelded son of Approve is a real likable, tough and genuine little horse and has won two already this season together with several good performances in defeat.

Bleu Astral makes his third start in the 32red Casino Median Auction Maiden Stakes. By Astronomer Royal, he is a half brother to Spirit Of The Law and was purchased out of the Osarus Yearling September Sale in France last year. He runs in the colours of James Gaffney and is a colt well-liked in the yard.

Simply Shining: remains in good form

Last but by no means least we run Simply Shining in the 32red.Com Fillies Handicap. Owned by Helen and Norman Steel, the daughter of Rock Of Gibraltar has top weight in this 0-75 event and Sammy takes 5lbs off. She won well at Newcastle two starts back when staying on well over today’s trip and remains in good order as she makes her Tapeta debut.

Glen's Diamond: suffered career-ending injury

Yorkshire Cup winner, Glen’s Diamond retired...

Glen’s Diamond has been retired following an injury to his near-fore suspensory ligament.

The injury, which occurred during his final start on the Knavesmire in May this year, thankfully was not life-threatening but serious enough to end his career on the racetrack.

However, our vet’s prognosis for the gelded son of Intikhab has been positive and he will, in time, make a lovely riding horse...
