Walker expects Blazing Desert repeat

January 30, 2013 09:21:35 UK

Simon Walker rose Blazing Desert to victory in Wolverhampton's Amateur Riders' Handicap and immediately told race fans this one could win again.

It may only have been a low-grade affair but working on the principle that a winner's a winner, it would be wise to take the experienced amateur's words seriously.

I would be extremely surprised if he weren't to win again very soon.

After dismounting from the nine-year-old after a two-length victory Walker said: "He did that really well. He had them all off the bridle some way out and he's a very honest animal.

"I would be extremely surprised if he weren't to win again very soon and I would expect that to be around here."

Owner Richard Francis was equally pleased with the performance, but admitted the horse has a bizarre history.

He said: "He was bought as a point-to-pointer, but never stayed the distances and really needs top of the ground.

"We ran him here a week ago and that put an edge on him, so I'm glad about that because it showed out there as he won today.

"He can also go over the jumps, but while the ground is as it is we will be keeping him to flat races."

Meanwhile, Richard Hughes is 1.071 to be crowned champion Flat Jockey this season, with Ryan More 8.00 and William Buick 1000.00.
