Horse Racing: SIMIANNA A SIZZLER; FLAT FLYER: TRAINER ALAN BERRY PICKS HIS HORSES TO FOLLOW


Byline: GARRY OWEN

ALAN BERRY may not have inherited his father's famous lucky red shirt but he has already proved that training winners runs in the family.

Last year, his first since taking over the reins from Jack, he saddled no less than 73 winners.

And with around 100 horses currently stabled at his Cockerham yard the omens look good.

He said: "I've about 60 two-year-olds and they look a nice bunch.

"From what I've seen on the gallops, some have been pulling clear of the others so that is usually a good sign that we may have a star or two in the camp."

It was Scottish-owned veteran Garnock Valley that set the Berry jnr band-wagon rolling early last January and his first turf winner, Bennochy at Catterick in March, also has a tartan connection.

"Garnock Valley is owned by Robert Aird from Ayrshire and Bennochy's owners, Roy and Norman Peebles, are also from up there. Providing it's soft enough, old GARNOCK VALLEY is likely to go for the handicap sprint at Musselburgh next week. A smart two-year-old of ours called SIMIANNA is being lined up for the auction race on the same card.

"We've aleady had eight winners on the all-weather this year so it would be nice to notch another winner or two from the three-days at Doncaster. I'm seeing my folks on Sunday and it would be a nice Mother's Day present."

Two-year-olds

BONNIE LAD

This is the fellow owned by Michael Owen and I'd love to win a race at the Chester May meeting with him as Michael lives in that area. He won't be out too early but he's sharp enough.

FLIGHT OF EAGLES

He's by our good old sprinter Paris House and he's a half-brother to Selhurstpark Flyer, who won the Wokingham at Royal Ascot for dad. The plan is to get him on to the racecourse early and try and get some wins on the scoreboard before the bigger, stronger two-year-olds are ready.

GALAXY SAM

This is one of my big hopes for the season and I'm already thinking of him as Royal Ascot material. He's owned by a financial investment company and they look to be on a winner here. Hopefully he will prove as good on the course as at home. He has been going great guns.

MERCENARY

He is set to run at Doncaster on Saturday. He's a laid back type of colt which should work in his favour at 'Donny' as it's a stiff enough test for a two-year-old early on.

RUM DESTINY

He has really started to fire in the last week or so. He's a sturdy type and I'd expect him to do well. As two-year-olds go, he's the typical stamp of a juvenile we tend to have and he'll be zipping up over five-furlong before too long. …
