Strong Ryan team in Gimcrack

Sat, 18 August 2012

Yorkshire trainer Kevin Ryan has three possibles for the Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Gimcrack Stakes at York on Friday.

The Hambleton handler, successful with Amadeus Wolf in 2005, has the unbeaten Blaine, Windsor Castle Stakes victor Hototo and Indian Jade among 15 left in the six-furlong feature at the confirmation stage.

Aidan O'Brien has two Gimcrack triumphs on his CV and the Irish trainer looks to Afonso De Sousa and Gale Force Ten for a third.

Roger Varian is doubly represented with Morawij and Rocky Ground, while other interesting acceptors include Richard Hannon's Pearl Acclaim and Odooj, trained by William Haggas.

The one supplementary entry is the three-times-raced maiden Lewisham, trained by Noel Quinlan.
