Contrast declared for London Gold Cup on Lockinge Day

18th May, 2017

Contrast will carry second top weight under Ryan Moore in The Al Zubarah Gold Cup Handicap at Newbury on Saturday. This will be his first attempt over a mile and a quarter and given how strongly he finished over a mile in the Esher Cup last time one would hope that he will relish the extra distance. However, he will not want any further rain to arrive at the track, which is already described as good to soft following significant rain during the week. He is a quality colt and has thrived since his seasonal debut at Sandown last month, so it will be exciting to see him back out on the track on Saturday.
