Professional Horse Racing Tips, No Hype, No False Claims

Clive Cox is considering the Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes for Kodi Bear, after the youngster confirmed his promise when opening his account at Ascot on July 26.

After Kodi Bear's success in the Listed Winkfield Stakes, the Lambourn handler named the Dewhurst Stakes as a possible long-term objective.

In the meantime, the Kodiac colt, who had finished fifth in the Coventry Stakes at the Royal meeting, has plenty of entries, including Doncaster's Champagne Stakes and the Royal Lodge at Newmarket.

"He's eaten up, not a bother. He'd licked his manger by the time I got home from Salisbury on Saturday night," Cox told Racing UK.

"With any good horse you need a sober attitude. He eats and sleeps and has kept on growing, which is great.

"We've going to be patient with him. I'm delighted he's confirmed the ability we hoped he had and we'll give him time to mature a bit more and see how we go."

Scott Dixon's Cock Of The North was an impressive winner of the Brocklesby at the opening meeting of the season, a race usually won by a precocious type.

However, Cock Of The North, while not winning since Doncaster, has shown improved form on nearly every start, with his only disappointment coming in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot where he found the ground too quick.

He was staying on all the way to the line in the Solario Stakes (August 30) to be beaten just half a length.

"He's come out of the race great and handles his races pretty well," said Dixon.

"He was a bit unlucky but it was his own fault. He didn't handle the bend, he'd been keen and then he hung and if he'd run in a straight line I don't think it's a debate that he would have won.

"Finishing fourth doesn't read well but he arguably comes out of the race as the best horse.

"I don't think a mile will be an issue, in fact I think he'll be better over it. We just need to get him to settle and that's a work in progress.

"He has two targets left this season, the Juddmonte over a mile at Newmarket and, if all goes well there, I'd like to take him back to Doncaster for the Racing Post Trophy with it being our local track.

"If it doesn't go so well at Newmarket there are plenty of other Listed races he can run in.

"He'll be better next year, that's what Freddie (Tylicki) thinks, he's tall and rangy, not like your typical Brocklesby winner."
