Cap fits for South­well

Warwickshire Telegraph - - FRONT PAGE -

CAPOLAVORO hit the mark on his most re­cent out­ing and can make it a quick­fire dou­ble in the sun­ Hand­i­cap at South­well.

Robert Cow­ell’s charge was a win­ner at Wolver­hamp­ton on Satur­day evening and con­nec­tions are clearly ea­ger to strike again while the iron is hot as he turns out just three days later.

He turned in an eye­catch­ing per­for­mance in win­ning at Dun­stall Park, trav­el­ling well through­out be­fore eas­ing through and quick­en­ing smartly to reg­is­ter a com­fort­able two-and-aquar­ter-length ver­dict.

Capolavoro won off a perch of 69 there and will line up with a 6lb penalty here, with Cow­ell gam­bling that the hand­i­cap­per will raise him a bit more than that in the full­ness of time.

Syn­di­cate can make it fourth-time lucky in the Bri­tish Stal­lion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes.

Se­cond on her first two race­course starts, Syn­di­cate was well fan­cied to hit the mark as she dropped back to maiden com­pany af­ter tack­ling a con­di­tions heat on her penul­ti­mate run.

How­ever, she dis­ap­pointed in fin­ish­ing only fourth on her first try at a mile, so a drop back to seven fur­longs makes sense and can see her fi­nally get off the mark.

Roger Var­ian has his string in good shape and it looks very dif­fi­cult to get away from High Com­mand in the Down­load The Bet­way App Hand­i­cap.

The High Cha­parral geld­ing won over a mile and a half at this track last month, get­ting ev­ery yard and be­ing well in com­mand at the fin­ish.

It would be most sur­prised is this first go at a mile and three-quar­ters did not bring about fur­ther im­prove­ment.

Still Wait­ing should be fol­lowed in the 32Red Casino Nurs­ery Hand­i­cap.

The William Jarvis-trained young­ster ran by far his best race to date when last seen at Kemp­ton, where he was step­ping up in trip and out of maid­ens, as well as try­ing the all­weather for the first time.

He ul­ti­mately had to give best to Mark John­ston’s Dom­i­nat­ing, but there was no dis­grace in that and if he can build on it he should be there­abouts once more.

Caracci Apache’s ini­tial out­ing over fences last term proved some­thing of a false start but he can make a fresh start in the di­vi­sion in the Signs 2000 Novices’ Chase at Ut­tox­eter.
