2:55 Lingfield - 3rd April

Johnny Sorrento made a poor start to his racing career when finishing last on debut when competing at Doncaster in the Brocklesby Conditions Stakes. This son of Zamindar was backed from 25/1 - 16/1 just before the off but a slow start put pay to any chances. Tim Pitt (pictured) rather tempted fate saying the horses wouldn't finish last and connections were clearly expecting much better at Town Moor. This American home bred colt has been described by his trainer as ''an honest little colt who keeps stepping up to the plate in his work''. He was sent to Wolverhampton the Tuesday before the Brocklesby and had stalls work on the Wednesday as part of his pre-education. The stable were disappointed to returned from Doncaster with a duck egg after his name. A quick return to the course suggest there is better to come. Many two-year-olds run poorly on debut and it is sometimes a strange factor that the worse they look the better they go second start. Experience counts for a lot this time of year and Johnny Sorrento could well put that first race behind him. Better is expected today at huge odds.

Result:  Johnny Sorrento was backed from 25/1 - 10/1sp with bookmakers, after touching 40/1+ on Betfair. Ran a great race, finished second behind easy winner Cheerio Sweetie.
