Offer chasing Greenham glory

Mon, 16 April 2012

Roger Charlton is eagerly awaiting the reappearance of his 2000 Guineas hope Top Offer in Saturday's Aon Greenham Stakes at Newbury.

The Dansili colt made a taking winning debut at the Berkshire track in August but has not been seen since due to a setback at the end of last season.

Charlton pinpointed the Greenham some time ago and his name is among 16 entries for the seven-furlong Group Three race, which was won by Frankel 12 months ago

"We're getting close now. All being well he runs in the Greenham," said Charlton.

"He's a very good-moving horse so I wouldn't want them to have too much more rain but we can't organise everything.

"He's in good form, I'm looking forward to running him.

"As far as I'm concerned a trial is like a prep, rather than a test, and I hope the Greenham will put him right for the Guineas, should he be good enough."

Richard Hannon's Bronterre, fourth in the Dewhurst, is likely to provide stiff competition, while Alan McCabe's Caspar Netscher is another possible.

Fencing, Tales Of Grimm and Mighty Ambition are others of note.
