A drop back to 5f in the Weatherbys Super Sprint at Newbury is under serious consideration for De Bruyne Horse.
We have a few options that we are considering for our Richard Hannon trained colt over the coming weeks.
In an interview with the press Tom said: "We did back him up quite quickly. It is a little bit back to the drawing board with him and I imagine the likes of the Redcar sales race and the Doncaster one at York are possibilities later on. He's in the Weatherbys Super Sprint and he might be one to stick in the Prix Robert Papin at Maisons-Laffitte, or the Rose Bowl at Newbury.
I know he would have top weight in the Super Sprint but it is worth a lot to the winner. It is just whether the five furlongs there would be too quick for him. That's what we have got weigh up but we are giving it serious consideration."
We have a total of 6 horses remaining in the £250k Super Sprint. The others are Kikini Bamalaam, Miss Bar Beach, Lady Anjorica, Lexington Grace and Ventura Gold. The current race-card can be seen here: https://www.racingpost.com/racecards/36/newbury/2017-07-22/669245
