JUDICIAL will be hoping he can cause the judge some problems in Saturday’s Beverley Bullet.
The Elite Racing Club-owned sprinter flopped in the Nunthorpe but will drop in grade in an attempt to return to winning form.
Following wins in a Beverley conditions race and Sandown’s Coral Charge, hopes were high that Judicial would be able to make his presence felt in last week’s five furlong Group 1.
However, after starting slowly he was never sighted, and connections are now hoping that the return to his favourite course will see him bounce back.
“We’ll see how he is for the rest of the week, but we are likely to look very closely at the Beverley Bullet,” said Dan Downie, racing manager for owners, Elite Racing.
“He didn’t have much of a race on Friday. He was quiet, for whatever reason, and Luke (Morris) said on the way down that he didn’t pull his arms out, like he tends to do.
“It was disappointing, but that wasn’t his running. He also missed the break at York, and that didn’t help, either.
“The ground is also going to go at some point, so we haven’t got many bullets left to fire, pardon the pun, so we are seriously looking at sending him to Beverley.”
