Clive Cox Stable Tour

    Champion sprinter Harry Angel achieved that accolade as a 3yo and Clive Cox believes the best is still to come. He gives an update for his stable star as well as for many other members of his very talented string.

Victory for Perfect Clarity in the Lingfield Oaks Trial on Saturday just about summed up the state of affairs at Clive Cox’s Lambourn stables as going to press he had the impressive statistics of eight winner from his last 24 runners.

The thoughts of another Queen Mary success to add to the victory of Heartache in 2017 were hatched at Ascot on Friday night when Shades Of Blue took a hot looking maiden and this week sees the return of star sprinters Harry Angel in the Group 2 Duke Of York Stakes at York on Wednesday. 

The season is clearly going just the way Cox would like and his 60 winners and prize money of £1,496,548 easily looks surmountable on current form.

With another big week ahead of him Clive kindly gave the lowdown on some of those he hopes can prosper in the weeks and months to come.

Harry Angel (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of four of his 8 starts and currently rated 125. Winner of the Group 1 July Cup at Newmarket (6f) in July by a length and a quarter from Limato and the Group 1 Sprint Cup at Haydock (6f) in September by four lengths from Tasleet. Also successful in the Group 2 Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock (6f) in May of last year when scoring by four and a half lengths from Second Thought.

Trainer Says:

He has wintered very well indeed and I am really pleased with his progress. He is stronger than last year which is wonderful. We had a pretty tricky Spring which was the same for all of us but I’m delighted that the horses are in such great form. It is very much a starting point at York on Wednesday and he has to shoulder a penalty but we are very excited about him going forward. The plan after is very much Royal Ascot, July Cup and Haydock. He is in very good form.

Khalidi

Form Profile:

Winner of four of his 14 starts and currently rated 109. Finished fifth, beaten 13 ½ lengths, to Defoe in the Group 2 Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket (1m 4f) this month.

Trainer Says:

Khalidi had a little bit of a step back with his run in Dubai and came home and didn’t quite give us his true form at Newmarket last time. We will give him a bit of time to come forward but I still think he is a class performer and I have no doubts about that.

He was gelded and he is going to enjoy what looks like faster going, now the ground is drying out. We will be looking forward to getting him started shortly. He showed a lot of promise as a two-year-old and then took a sideways step last year. He loves top of the ground and he is a nice horse to look forward to at the height of Summer.

Trainer Says:

She joined us from France last year and she has some very pleasing soft ground form from her time there. She ran for us at Goodwood the other day and just got a little bit tired. I am not sure the race or the track suited her completely. I hope we can build on that  effort next time.

He runs at York on Wednesday. He was a very able two-year-old and he won first time for us at Wolverhampton after breaking his pelvis. He is in good form for York and although this is a step up in trip, I think he will appreciate it. He is on a rating of 91 and I hope he can make his presence felt in these middle distance races.

Winner of two of his 12 starts and currently rated 100. Finished creditable fifth, beaten only a length and a half, to Gifted Master at Newmarket (6f) this month off his current mark.

Trainer Says:

He ran a much better race last time at Newmarket. He didn’t really perform in Dubai but as a two-year-old he won the Prix Robert Papin in course record time. I hope he can prove that he has trained on well after that run at Newmarket which has given me confidence he is back in the right direction.

Trainer Says:

He was second at Ascot on Friday and he won his maiden last year beating White Mocha at Salisbury. I would be very hopeful he can continue making strides in the right direction. He could get a mile and a quarter and wouldn’t mind a bit of ease underfoot rather than it being too firm as it was on Friday night.

He was a listed winner last year and ran in the Greenham and he appreciated the ground but not the trip it was too short for him. He will be much better going a mile and a quarter. He is in the London Handicap at Newbury.

Grand Koonta (IRE)

I was delighted with her success on Saturday, I'm really pleased with her progress and the race couldn't have panned out for her better. It was a very pleasing performance, and she'll come on again for the run. There is no reason that she shouldn't step up and take her chance in the Oaks now.

It didn’t look like he relished the step up to seven furlongs in the Free Handicap at Newmarket first time.
