THE RETRIEVER RETURNS TO TURF.

When The Retriever won at Southwell, a track that has almost become his second home, 15 days ago, by a impressive four and a half lengths, it begged the question, where did he suddenly find all that improvement from? After all he was racing in conditions he has faced on many occasions before, but he left all previous efforts well behind. It is possible that nothing else in the race ran to its best, but the chances are he has improved.The handicapper concurs, because he raised him 8lb to an all time high of 60, but his turf mark, which had been 55, after seven unplaced runs, remains the same.

The Retriever will go to post on Friday evening at 8.20.pm, in a 0-65 six furlong handicap, with Aiden Brookes who rode his first ever winner on him last time out, retaining the ride. If The Retriever is to win this then he will have to prove he can handle soft ground, and a step down to six furlongs, but he does go into the race in the form of his life.
