Henry Candy is watching the weather ahead of Limato’s scheduled return to action in the Duke of York Clipper Logistics Stakes next week.
The seven-year-old bounced back to form with a vengeance last summer, winning three on the bounce, although his season ended with defeat on Champions Day
That came in soft ground, though, and much more rain in Yorkshire could force Candy into a rethink.
“I’m delighted with the way he looks and he’s certainly retained all of his old enthusiasm – he’s in great form,” said Candy.
“As ever with Limato, him running is entirely ground dependent. He scrambled home on good to soft ground in the Garrowby at York last year and he didn’t like it much.
“I think in a race of that class he ought to have good ground or firmer.”
