Re­venge for Comepsa

The Sportsman Special Issue - - 2 -

WHILE the Larry Cas­sidy and Gwenda Mark­well com­bi­na­tion shoot for Car­ring­ton Stakes vic­tory with Al Be Nim­ble, a race ear­lier they have another strong chance of vic­tory with Comepsa.

The four-year-old geld­ing was nar­rowly beaten last start by Cer­tain Magic at Rose­hill but Cas­sidy was con­fi­dent Comepsa can turn the ta­bles on that gal­loper on Tues­day.

Hur­ried Choice may also con­test the race, al­though she is also en­tered for the Car­ring­ton Stakes.

Comepsa had to over­come a wide bar­rier last start and was just run down by Cer­tain Magic in the fi­nal few bounds.

Comepsa’s a lovely horse’’ racing man­ager Len Fownes said.

We’ve put him in this (Rat­ing 93) race to bring him down in weight. He did a fan­tas­tic job last start to only be grabbed late by Cer­tain Magic and they beat the rest very eas­ily.’’

Comepsa will jump from bar­rier two this time as Mark­well’s hor­ror run with bar­ri­ers in re­cent weeks ap­pears to have eased.
