Oliver hopes Sendmylovetorose blooms at Hinton Stakes

Trainer Andrew Oliver is hopeful that Sendmylovetorose will emerge victorious in the Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cherry Hinton Stakes at Newmarket on Friday. The two-year-old made a winning debut at Navan several weeks back and won a Group 3 horserace at the Curragh.

Punters looking for a young sprinter with an outside chance could lock in their wagers on this horse. Oliver told “She arrived in Newmarket on Wednesday and she seems to have settled in well, so we're ready to go. I'm confident we won't have a repeat of what happened at Ascot.” Sendmylovetorose was withdrawn from the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot after a bout of restlessness in the stalls.

In other news, Cape Classic will miss Saturday’s Bunbury Cup. The William Haggas-trained four-year-old was a 7-1 betting odds favourite to win the horserace at Newmarket. Cape Classic also missed the Buckingham Palace Handicap at Royal Ascot last month.

It could be a blessing in disguise as rainfall has pounded tracks throughout England the past week. The racetrack at Newmarket will likely have soft ground conditions from the recent wet weather.

Haggas told “"He won't get in the Bunbury Cup but he doesn't like soft ground anyway. There's the Betfair race at Ascot next weekend, but he probably won't get in that either without a penalty.”
