Bob set to step up in Greenham
John Hills is keen to learn more about Boomerang Bob's likely targets this season by running him in Saturday's AON Greenham Stakes at Newbury.
The three-year-old made a winning debut at Kempton last May and then filled the runner-up spot three times, at Windsor, Ascot and Chantilly.
He has yet to run beyond five furlongs and will tackle seven furlongs this weekend to give connections some idea as to whether he is a potential 2000 Guineas contender or an out and out sprinter.
"He's going to run in the Greenham and as it's his first run since July, he's going to benefit from it," said Hills.
"It looks a very good race on paper, so it will be interesting to see what sort of race it cuts up into.
"I'm been very pleased with our horse at home and we've got to find out where we're going with him.
"He got an injury last year that kept him off the track for a while and then we nearly got him back and he got another minor problem.
"He was an extremely fast horse last year but on his final run at Chantilly, it looked like he was begging to go further.
"We'll learn a lot more about him by running him on Saturday."
