Zuhd Looks like a Good Choice in Maiden Stakes


Byline: Saraband Racing Writer jnl.sport@ncjmedia.co.uk

ZUHD caught the eye when running very green on his debut and is worth another chance in the Download The Betvictor App Maiden Stakes at Kempton.

A 75,000 guineas purchase in 2011, Zuhd was clearly not the most precocious of runners as he did not make it to the track until last month when he was unsurprisingly all at sea against some more experienced rivals.

Zuhd should be a bit more streetwise now and this looks a good chance to get a win on the board.

Snowboarder proved thoroughly disappointing last time out but should be given chance to redeem himself in the BetVictor.com/British Stallion Studs EBF Conditions Stakes.

The Godolphin three-year-old looked as though he could make his mark at Pattern level in this country when stepping up from a Newmarket handicap win to finish third behind the well-regarded Montiridge in a Group Three event at Glorious Goodwood.

He could have been closer still that day had he found a clear passage on the rail and punters latched onto his evident ability when sending him off as a joint-second favourite at Salisbury next time out.

However, Snowboarder was always toiling in the Sovereign Stakes and was beaten well over a furlong out before being eased down to finish a distant last of the six runners.

Something was clearly amiss that day but Charlie Appleby would not be running here unless he was sure his charge was over whatever ailed him on his most recent outing.

Having shown good form on the Tapeta in Dubai over the winter, most notably when not beaten far by Soft Falling Rain, Snowboarder certainly merits the utmost respect as he returns to an all-weather surface.

The conditions of the race see him getting weight all round despite being rated upwards of 7lb better than all his rivals and as long as the Raven's Pass colt has recovered from his blip, he should take all the beating. …
