Ebor option for Galway-bound Overturn
Published 20/07/2010 | 12:35
Donald McCain could consider running Overturn in the totesport Ebor at York - providing the Northumberland Plate winner returns from Galway in good from.
The six-year-old is ante-post favourite at a general 7-1 for the Arthur Guinness Galway Hurdle on Thursday week after his impressive all-the-way win at Newcastle.
"He's in great nick and seems to be thriving on his racing at the moment," McCain told At The Races.
"He's in the Ebor (August 18), but that's another month down the line.
"The only thing that would have stopped us going to Galway was that it's very difficult for an English horse to win an Irish handicap.
"At this time of year opportunities are more limited, it's a massive prize to be competing for and we will be going there with a chance.
"Whether we are good enough or not is a different kettle of fish, but we will be going there to be competitive and run a big race.
"He's still in the Ebor, but we'll take it one step at a time.
"He's a smashing horse, he's in great form at the moment and when he tells me he needs a break, we will give him one."
