Bluff moves to Littmoden.

COASTAL BLUFF, dead-heat winner of the 1997 Nunthorpe, has joined Nick Littmoden and could be racing again as early as March after recovering from a tendon injury, writes Edward Prosser.

The six-year-old was bought at Tattersalls in October for 17,000gns by bloodstock agent Linda Tate following a dispute between his former trainer David Barron and majority owner David Sharp.

After sustaining the injury, Barron wanted to retire Coastal Bluff, who has won over pounds 200,000 in prize-money, but Sharp wanted to put the gelding up for auction.

Littmoden has been delighted with his new charge and said yesterday: "Our vet recently scanned the leg and the horse has been given a clean bill of health. He's just walking at the moment, but we will start working him properly in January."
