Horse Racing: Bahamian Pirate back to sand for belated follow-up bid; RACE OF THE DAY Live on ATR 4.00 Southwell Pontin's Holidays Conditions Stakes (6f).
Adrian Nicholls, rider of Bahamian Pirate
"He's in good form and I think he knows more about racing than I do. He's won round there before, although it was a good few years ago now. It looks a competitive race and some of them look like they are fit and fighting to go, but you never know."
Stef Liddiard, trainer of Certain Justice
"We've no pretensions of beating the top two in the race, but conditions races can throw up funny results sometimes. He's in good form, is getting on well with Hayley Turner and in this vein of form we thought it worth a chance."
Derek Shaw, trainer of Prince Tum Tum
"We are struggling a bit to find opportunities for him and as it's just down the road we thought we would take our chance. I don't think he saw out the seven on this surface last week. He's got Qadar and Waterside to beat, but Qadar hasn't got form on the Fibresand and these races aren't always run to their ratings."
Nick Littmoden, trainer of Qadar
"He hasn't run there very often, the last time was over six, back in February, when he got hampered and wasn't beaten that far. He's in real good form, and he comes out very well at the weights."
David Wilson, assistant to Gary Moore, trainer of Waterside
"He was a bit unlucky last time at Southwell, as I don't think going wide suited his style, as he likes to eyeball his rivals. He's in very good heart and should run well."
