A packed house is expected at Sheffield next Saturday, March 2
THE draw for the £5,000 Racing Post Juvenile at Sheffield next Saturday, March 2 has been made.
Puppy competition winners Droopys Trapper (Puppy Plate) and Pond Adonis (Ryan Holmes Puppy) are joined by Northern Puppy Derby runner-up Droopys Heron and Puppy Derby second Newinn Banger with Ballymac Osby and Seaglass Phantom completing the field.
The Racing Post’s Jonathan Kay said: “It is an unusual Juvenile in some ways with some of the major competition winners unavailable for one reason or another.
“We took the view that those who had won a puppy competition should get in and, after that, recent race or trial form was considered.
“The seedings work well and it looks a tremendous race in prospect.”
The Harry Williams-trained Pond Adonis clocked a calculated 28.82sec in a 500m trial before racing at Sheffield on Friday.
The meeting will be shown live on RPGTV, with the Juvenile trophy presentation made by Lorraine Archibald of Ladbrokes, Newtownards, the reigning Racing Post/SIS Betting Shop Manager of the Year.
*Supporting opens close at noon on Tuesday 26/2/19.
