Positive

Clive Cox is very much looking forward to his two year old Positive running in the Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket on Saturday with the juvenile looking to reverse his form with Pinatubo.

Positive has raced three times during his sort career showing plenty of ability, winning on his debut at Salisbury in good style showing he was a class above the competition that day.

He then stepped up to a Group Two at Goodwood in the Vintage Stakes and ran a cracker but was still five lengths behind the winner Pinatubo who he is hoping he will be able to get a lot closer to this time around.

The colt heads into the Group One Dewhurst Stakes off the back of a big win last time out at Sandown when taking the Group Three Solario Stakes and if coming on again for that run has to be the big danger to the Godolphin favourite.

The Cheveley Park Stud owned juvenile is one of 11 possible runners in the race on Saturday after Coolmore supplemented Wichita for £40,000 on Monday which now sees Aidan O'Brien with a big chance in the race as well.

(Credit Racing Post) Cox said: "Like everyone else I have been extremely taken with Pinatubo, there’s no disputing his quality, but I am hopeful that Positive can show the necessary improvement to close the gap with him on Saturday.

"Positive is still on an upward curve and has done really well since he won the Solario. He had a proper race that day and also impressed us very much when coming up against Pinatubo.

"We have had a dry summer, so my opinion may be based more on theory than fact, but I would like to think that Positive will be at home on the type of easier ground he is likely to encounter on Saturday."

The trainer is looking for his first winner in Saturday's Group 1 feature after having two place efforts in the last 10 years with Kodi Bear who was second in 2014 and Xtension, who went on to win a Group One in Hong Kong after his third back in 2009.

Bookies have Positive as a General 12/1 shot with favourite Pinatubo at 1/3.
