Baker’s Hurricane looks to step up

January 21, 2015 08:44:27 UK

The George Baker-trained Harry Hurricane will be out to follow up on his maiden success when he takes his handicap bow at Kempton Park on Wednesday.

The three-year-old shed his maiden tag in impressive fashion at Wolverhampton earlier this month, ranging alongside the Charlie Appleby-trained Emirates Skycargo in the home straight before going on to score by a cosy three-quarters-of-a-length under Pat Cosgrave.

The Godolphin runner has since gone on to win at Lingfield earlier this week with plenty in hand. Harry Hurricane is priced at 3.50 for the 6f handicap at the Surrey track due to go to post at 6.30pm.

Baker clearly holds Harry Hurricane in high regard having allowed him to take his chance in the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes at Ascot in June. He then finished in mid-division behind the Richard Hannon trained Tiggy Wiggy in the Weatherbys Super Sprint at Newbury in July, both efforts coming over the minimum 5f.

He shed his maiden tag over 7f at Wolverhampton but, having put the race to bed with a terrific burst of pace two furlongs from home, the drop back to 6f on Wednesday evening should not inconvenience him.

The famous blue silks will again be standing in his path as Appleby and Adam Kirby team up with recent Chelmsford City winner Blue Aegean (2.62).
