JUSTIN Vermaak is expecting improvement from Green Street Bloodstock’s Midtown Manhattan (Justin Snaith) in a MR68 Handicap over 1400m at Kenilworth on Saturday.

Last November, three-year-old Midtown Manhattan ran Gr1 Fillies Guineas winner Just Sensual to 5.50-lengths over this course and distance in a stronger handicap, on the strength of which she can win this race, though she appeared to go a little off the boil after that.

Justin commented: “Her most recent run amounted nothing more than a grass gallop. She is probably one run short of peak fitness and she hasn’t drawn well, but we’re expecting a return to form.”

Midtown Manhattan worked very well for Bernard Fayd'Herbe this week.
