Trainers give thumbs-up to Proclamation’s first runners

24/03/10 – Two-year-olds by the Overbury stallion come under orders on first weekend of Flat season

Proclamation is not hanging around in the race to be leading first-season sire with three runners entered for races in the first week of the new season.
One filly, Bold Deceiver, who was bred here at Overbury, could be particularly busy next week as she is likely to run at Kempton on Saturday and Southwell later in the week in a bid to snap up a £10,000 yearling bonus.
Her trainer Phil McEntee said: “She’s been very straightforward throughout. She’s a lovely walker and though her pedigree suggests she’d want a trip and time that has not been the case. She’s extremely sharp and forward-going.”
He added confidently: “She’s galloped at Southwell and Chris Catlin was really pleased with her. She definitely runs on Saturday and hopefully later in the week at Southwell, where we’ll be aiming to win the bonus. I’d like to think she’ll be Proclamation’s first winner.”
McEntee might not have things all his own way, however, as Tom Dascombe’s Brocklesby runner, Mirror Lad, has been nominated by the up-and-coming trainer as one of two juveniles to follow from his yard this year. Bred by Terry Minahan from the Shareef Dancer mare Shaieef, he also holds a Weatherbys Super Sprint entry for later in the season.
Rod Millman has two Proclamation juveniles in his Devon yard and expects to see Rosina Grey making her racecourse debut in a fortnight.
“She’s a nice little filly and she’ll win a race,” says Millman.
Marcus Tregoning, who has a colt named Blue Vinney and the filly Maiden’s Decree in his stable, is another fan of Proclamation.
He said: “I looked at a lot of the Proclamations: he stamps them well and, like King’s Best, gives them a great shape. I bought one on spec and he was the first of my two-year-olds to canter. He’s very straightforward and moves beautifully.”
Clive Cox has a half-brother to smart sprinter Godfrey Street, whom he describes as “racey and athletic”. The colt has been named Xclaim and Cox will be hoping the X-factor will come into play again this year following the success of his G2 Vintage Stakes winner Xtension, who is a contender for this year’s 2000 Guineas.
