CHRIS WALL is a past master at cutting his coat according to his cloth and anyone with knowledge of his ways will be aware that entries made from his small team in Induna Stables in Newmarket are performed meticulously.
The quietly spoken trainer is long established as an astute placer of his horses and could well be looking at some Goodwood joy this week with the now eight-year-old First Sitting who contests the mile and a quarter Unibet Handicap on the first day.
First Sitting has slipped to a workable mark of 97 and, back over a course and distance where he has twice won the Listed Festival Stakes, hinted that he was ready for a return to winning form when finishing a respectable fourth in a decent handicap on Newmarket’s July course at the end of June. Whatever the outcome on Tuesday, Chris can be assured to find success somewhere down line and he has his team in top order at a period of the season when he invariably does well.
The rain has arrived to allow Oh It’s Saucepot to take her chance at Windsor Monday evening and similar conditions could pave the way for many of her stablemates to be back in imminent action.
Chris kindly spoke to Tony Elves about his team and their prospects for the next few months.
