Here we have a very fast sprinter in the form of AIRSHOW, who we purchased from the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale in Newmarket. He's by the top sire SHOWCASING, who has demonstrated with the likes of Advertise and Quiet Reflection, that he can sire Group 1 winning performers at Sprint distances. Given Airshow is still going to be a very young sprinter even as a 5yo in 2020 (most sprinters do not peak until they are 5yo or a 6yo,) there remains a huge potential with our super looking gelding, to show improvement over the next two or three seasons to race.
He looks a better performer on the AW than the turf and he appears to go best around bends, where he is able to dominate the field, and advantage himself from the front. He loves Kempton, be it 5f or 6f and there are plenty of races to be won with him.
He looks to be in the perfect place for a busy and successful winter All-Weather campaign.
He’s moved back to Rod Millman and has settled in really well. Rod gave him a run this week, to blow the cobwebs away and his lack of fitness showed. He’ll have him out over the winter competing in small fields, over 6f ish in 0-105 and 0-95 company, where the prize money is excellent. He could be very well handicapped now he’s back with Rod. He did win a feature £19,000 Sprint handicap on New Year’s Day: https://www.attheraces.com/atrplayer-popup/VOD/1127647 and he could be seriously well handicapped back on the turf too. TIMEFORM RATED
