Improver Can Make It A Double Over Course And Distance

Things didn't look too bright last Spring when ROYAL SANDS ran three disappointing races, although his last one, on the all-weather at Kempton, did show more promise when he was beaten under six lengths by Land Of Legends. The first event was over a mile and two furlongs and the others over seven, so he wasn't thought of as a sprinter, but a gelding operation and then time off the course followed before he returned at Chelmsford. This was again over seven furlongs but the he ran poorly, coming home last of 13 to Hunterwall.

Unfancied at 10/1, he latterly contested his fifth race, dropped to the sprint distance of six furlongs on Southwell's Fibresand and promptly sluiced home from Marvel, runner-up in his previous four races, and Tease Maid, previously second to the massively in-form Queen of Kalahari. Fibresand was always going to suit him, as the progeny of his sire Dabirsim are a significant four from five on it, all at Southwell. In context, that is decent form and Royal Sands now drops another furlong to the minimum five, with trainer James Given obviously regarding him as a sprinter. He is up 4lb for his win, which seems reasonable and Given is 14% at the course which is encouraging.

His main rival is probably REQUITED who also loves this course as he has two wins and a second to his name in four starts here and returns after a disappointing run at Bath. He is up 3lb for his last win here and is well exposed rather than a potentially massive improver like Royal Sands. His trainer Hughie Morrison, though, has had just one winner from his last 16 runners.

ZAPPER CLASS is next best on ratings and has four all-weather wins to his name but hasn't beaten many home in his four runs here. PRIVATE MATTER is being backed after a wind operation and wearing cheek-pieces for the first time but needs a big lift from either or both to take this. At 2/1, Royal Sands should be backed to carry on improving.
