Kodi is bear­ing up well, says trainer

The Herald - Sport - - SHINTY -

TRAINER Clive Cox re­ports Kodi Bear to be in ex­cel­lent health af­ter the colt made a tri­umphant re­turn fol­low­ing a se­ri­ous ill­ness in the Listed Uni­bet Midsummer Stakes at Wind­sor on Satur­day, writes Colin McNeill.

Kodi Bear was a smart two-year-old but any dreams of a Clas­sic cam­paign were shat­tered in the spring when the De­whurst Stakes run­ner-up suf­fered a bad in­fec­tion in his lymph drainage canal. How­ever, Kodi Bear showed he had made a full re­cov­ery with vic­tory in a Listed con­test at the Berk­shire course over an ex­tended mile.

The ex­cel­lent way the son of Ko­diac has taken his come­back run sug­gests he could step back up to Group One com­pany in the Prix Jean Prat on July 12. “He’s come out of the race re­ally well. He’s well, eaten up and is pleased with him­self and nat­u­rally so are we,” said the Lam­bourn han­dler.
