Clive Cox Gives Updates On His Two Year Old Stars

Clive Cox

Leading trainer Clive Cox has given an update on his star juvenile team ahead of the Autumn fixtures on the flat and Supremacy looks to be his most exciting prospect with an entry in the Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket.

The Group Two Gimcrack Stakes on the Knavesmire had been an original Plan B for the smart juvenile with a run in the Prix Morny in France the first option but the wet conditions at Deauville ruled him out of that event.

Supremacy at Glorious Goodwood laid down a big gauntlet for the rest of the juvenile sprinting division by landing the Group Two Richmond Stakes by four lengths, following in the footsteps of his sire Mehmas.

This came on just his third run in his career, where before he had landed a nice event at Windsor but now Clive Cox is dreaming big with this pacy youngster, but after a bad scope which ruled him out of the Ebor meeting he is more hesitant.

(Credit ATR) “He’s in great form, and we are heading towards the Middle Park – that’s his intended target at the end of the season,” said Cox.

“It’s just great he’s another high-class two-year-old performer (for us).”

Nando Parrado is another star for Cox that made a huge name for himself this term when he pulled off one of the biggest shocks in Royal Ascot history when landing the Group Two Coventry Stakes at the biggest odds ever seen by a winner at the five day festival.

The son of Kodiac proved that his Ascot run was not a fluke when a good second behind Queen Mary Stakes winner Campanelle in the Prix Morny in testing conditions.

“He is back very well indeed from his second in the Morny,” he added.

“Although we have entries covered over six furlongs in the Middle Park, similarly the autumn ground holds no fears with him, and we’re keen to give him the option of stepping up to seven furlongs as well at this stage.

“He’s in the Dewhurst (also at Newmarket) and the (Prix Jean-Luc) Lagardere (at ParisLongchamp) as well. He’s well entered – and I’m thrilled to report he’s come back from a very solid performance, being second in the Morny to a very good filly.

“We’ll play the cards accordingly and keep an open mind.”

Cox seemingly has one of his best juvenile teams for some time with Cobh another smart youngster with a victory in a Listed race at Salisbury last time out and that form being franked on Saturday at Haydock with second in that race, Fancy Man, winning his own Listed event.

Cox added:“He’s another well-entered individual that won the Stonehenge at Salisbury very convincingly over a mile.

“It was great for Kodi Bear’s first crop of two-year-olds to have a classy performer like him carrying the flag.

“He was second in Listed company on quick ground at Ascot – so he’s also very versatile – and I think although he’s won over a mile, we’re keeping an open mind on seven furlong races as well.

“He’s a horse we’re very pleased with.”
