Racing: Coastal Bluff may run in July Cup
Thursday 03 July 1997
Last year's Stewards' Cup and Ayr Gold Cup winner had been pencilled in for Saturday's Listed Sandown Park Sprint Stakes. However, his trainer said yesterday: "Our other option is the July Cup.
"I have spoken to the owner and Kevin Darley is coming down to ride him in a gallop tomorrow. If he were to work exceptionally well he might go straight to the July Cup."
Coastal Bluff has been slow to come to hand this term and is unraced since last September, missing his latest intended return to action at Newcastle last Saturday because of unsuitably soft going.
He has been entered for the Stewards' Cup again this year but Barron said he is unlikely to run: "We will just have to see how he gets on in his first run of the season.
"It was an entry made just in case he misfired. He is more likely to go for the bigger sprints, and if he were to pick up a penalty, he definitely wouldn't run in the Stewards' Cup."
