New start has Tim Pitt excited

Tim Pitt sends out his first runner since relocating to Shropshire when Captain Myles lines up at Wolverhampton on Thursday.

A Group One-winning trainer with Les Arcs when based in Bawtry, Pitt then spent time in Malton and Newmarket before accepting an invitation to move to Helshaw Grange, which has been taken over by Cheshire-based owner Paul Wildes.

Captain Myles, who was placed in both starts for Nicky Vaughan, goes in the Best Odds At bookmakers.co.uk Median Auction Maiden Stakes.

"The horse is new for me, not for the owner, but you would hope he goes there with a chance as there are only five runners," Pitt said.

"On his second start at Carlisle, he was only just beaten by a horse of Ollie Pears' called No Leaf Clover, who went on to finish second in a Listed race, so the form is there.

"We moved in the depths of October so we've just let the horses that came from Newmarket settle in and get used to the gallops and everything.

"It's great, we've 30 horses in, and quite a few that have just turned three to get out during the all-weather season."
