Bass Determined – Ramsden Annoyed

Cape trainers puzzled and confused - but life goes on

Fly By Night

Mike Bass-trained Fly By Night

Mercury Sprint winner Fly By Night will have her Computaform Sprint prep in the 1200m Allowance Plate at Kenilworth on Sunday after Monday’s Pinnacle attracted only two other runners and was scrapped.

Mike Bass, along with a number of other trainers, is determined that Sunday’s race will not suffer a similar fate and says he will declare enough horses to make sure it goes ahead.

Fellow Computaform candidate Tevez was among those not declared for the cancelled race and Bass explained: “He had already won a prep race and he didn’t need to run again. I reckon he is fit enough and he will sprint up 800m on grass before he leaves for Johannesburg.”

Joey Ramsden -  'bloody annoyed'

Joey Ramsden – ‘bloody annoyed’

Joey Ramsden put Grand Parade Cape Guineas winner Act Of War into Sunday’s 1 400m Open Handicap with a view to using it as a prep for the Winter Guineas on May 3 and was incensed to find that his star has been lumbered with a massive 70.5kg, giving a minimum of 10.5kg to the rest of the field with the weights going down to 48.5kg.

He said: “I am bloody annoyed. This is an open handicap, not a 0-70 or 0-80. They obviously don’t want Act Of War to run in the Winter Guineas.”
