Konchek set for all-weather debut

Trainer Clive Cox believes Konchek can continue his fine form when he makes his debut on Kempton’s all-weather track.

The two-year-old has made a positive start to his career and Cox feels the time is right for a trip on the all-weather.


Konchek?s only victory came on his first-ever outing at Newmarket but he was among the challengers when coming home second at the same course in July.


Cox?s charge had to settle for fourth place last time out at Goodwood when he was narrowly beaten by Land Force.


The trainer feels Konchek is already showing good signs of consistency and thinks he will adapt to the all-weather when he debuts in the 188Bet Sirenia Stakes.


Cox said: “Konchek is running on the all-weather for the first time but he is a very consistent performer and I don’t see why he shouldn’t handle it.


“He was second to Advertise on two starts ago which was a very serious run and he run a very nice race when fourth in the Richmond at Goodwood.


“He comes into the race in good form and hopefully he can play a major part.”
