Thoughts on Outrage at Nottingham today
Outrage runs in the 2.40 at Nottingham this afternoon (Saturday 7th of May). Luke Morris rides the gelding in the five furlong handicap. The last time the team paired was when Outrage broke his maiden over this trip at Windsor. He is lightly raced and open to progression and gelding him seems to have helped as he was always prone to carrying plenty of condition. He had a nasty injury as a yearling that made it very difficult to train him as a young horse, however as time has gone by we have been able to train him in a more conventional manner and hopefully he will improve because of it. He has the worst of the draw and we’d be disappointed if he didn’t make up into a better horse than this grade however, he has a lot to learn compared to his battle hardened rivals and the run ought to sharpen him up.
Shackled N Drawn is more than capable at this level and ran well enough on his first run in a long time last time out to suggest that with the rustiness out of the way he ought to be a big player. Flash City went close in a better race than this last time and sets the standard.
