The Future Looks Bright For Sprinter

Improving Four-Year-Old Ready To Strike Again

The Julie Camacho trained ROYAL PROSPECT has been obviously slow to mature as he was gelded in the middle of his second year and didn't make his racecourse debut until the October of that season, winning over today's course and distance in a novice event. He was then off the course for over a year before coming out again here last Autumn, when he got home late to beat NICK VEDDER in a photo, and that horse had won his previous race and has been edged out in another tight finish since. He re-opposes on one pound better terms but is unlikely to have the development in him as Royal Prospect. Taking those facts into consideration, today's two months plus absence shouldn't bother Royal Prospect and as the only obvious improver in the field he looks like a worthy favourite. BTOPlus+ has him top on regular ratings and allocates him a dozen positives. These include jockey Calum Rodriguez' impressive 187% better than expected over course and distance and the liking for the Tapeta surface of the progeny of his sire Thewayyouare, which is an impressive 13%+. EQUIANO SPRINGS won well last time out but gets four BTO negatives, making Julie Camacho's gelding look decent at 2/1.
