Born To Sea

Trainer John Oxx will resist the temptation to bring Born To Sea back in distance after he finished 12th in the QIPCO 2000 Guineas at Newmarket on Saturday.

Famous more for being a half-brother to Sea The Stars, than for his exploits on the track so far, he was beaten 10 lengths behind Camelot.

He was not given a hard time by Johnny Murtagh in the hope that there are better days to come.

“The race was a bit of a non-event for him he just pulled too hard, even when the pace increased in the second furlong he still didn’t drop the bit,” said Oxx.

“He basically took off for three and a half to three furlongs, and that was that.

“Johnny wasn’t hard on him after that so it was a non-event, I’m afraid.

“If he settles better in future I’m sure he’ll run a good race.

“I think we’ll stick around the mile and if we do bring him back, it will only be by a furlong.”
