14.45 Pontefract - Busy Street
Busy Street is by multiple group 1 winner, Champs Elysee, and is a half brother to group 2 winner, Canticum, and also to Uphold, who won several handicaps off marks in the 80's. Busy Street improved for debut run to win a 1M 4F Southwell maiden by 4 lengths under Neil Fairly. He was 2nd in a couple of handicaps off 75 and 77 on first 2 start this year and then ran with credit in a 1M 4F York handicap, when 7th of 20 off 81. Form of that run is working out. He was a bit disappointing on first run here at Pontefract, finishing 4th of 9 in a class 4 handicap over this CD in May but that was his third run in less than 40 days and he may have been feeling. The winner also came out and won off 7lbs higher next time, while the 5th has also won a Newmarket handicap since. Busy Street has dropped 1lb to 79 and Alan Swinbank has won this handicap in 2012 & 2014. Neil Fairley, who has been on board just once before for the maiden win, is back on again today.
