Walk in the snow?

2018-02-26

JEREMY Noseda is hoping a potential ‘big freeze’ in the UK won’t stop Walk In The Sun tomorrow at Lingfield.

The Street Sense colt of Phoenix Thoroughbred Ltd made a winning start to his career when landing a seven-furlong novice race at Kempton last month.

He remains at the same distance and in similar company, albeit carrying appreciably more weight than his three rivals, for his second assignment.

Jeremy said: “He’s a horse I like who has moved forward from his first run.

“Tomorrow’s race is the ideal stepping stone to his turf season and will let me know a little bit more about where he is heading and what his future will be.

“He is in great order so we thought we’d take the next step with him now rather than wait until April.

“I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the weather forecasts are not correct in their predictions about tonight’s snowfall drifting into tomorrow.”

Also scheduled to be in Lingfield action for the Shalfleet team is Abe Lincoln.

He returned to winning ways at Wolverhampton on his first start of the year.

Tomorrow afternoon will see him contest a handicap over a mile and a quarter – the first time in his career that he has tackled that distance.

His trainer said: “l was pleased with Abe Lincoln’s win last time over seven furlongs.

“He should be really well suited to step up to a mile and a quarter. 

“He goes there with a very solid chance in my opinion.”
