The season hasn’t quite gone to plan so far for Raven’s Corner, but he bids to get back on track as he goes in the 7f handicap at Meydan on Thursday.
After being forced to withdraw on his intended return when rearing in the stalls in December, he then played up again before the start of the Dubawi Stakes 3 weeks ago. He finished sixth of 7 that day, actually not disgracing himself in only being beaten 10 lengths by some top-class sprinters despite very little going right for him.
He should also come on for that fitness wise and will obviously appreciate the drop back into handicap company here. Again Pat Cosgrave takes the ride, with Richie Mullen unfortunately being banned for the meeting. The draw could have been better, but we’re hopeful Raven’s can give a better account of himself today.
