Resurge: Has a fantastic record at Epsom

Resurge: Has a fantastic record at Epsom

Stuart Kittow believes stable stalwart Resurge retains all of his old enthusiasm as the Epsom specialist returns to the track for the Investec Property Investment City And Suburban Handicap on Wednesday.

The nine-year-old has won four times from 10 visits to the track and filled the runner-up spot on three occasions.

Resurge made a winning return to action over the course and distance last May and Kittow is confident his charge is as good as ever.

He said: "He seems in good shape and the drop of rain they've had won't do him any harm.

"He's fit and well and we know he likes Epsom, so we'll keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.

"He won first time out last season. He was a little off-colour last spring and didn't start off until the end of May, but we've had no hiccups with him so far this year and we've been able to get him out a bit earlier."

Kittow is double-handed with dual Epsom winner Weapon Of Choice, who needs to bounce back from a poor seasonal reappearance in the Spring Mile at Doncaster last month.

"Weapon Of Choice was a bit disappointing at Doncaster, but he did get a lot of daylight, which wouldn't have necessarily suited him," said the Devon trainer.

"He's come on for the run and hopefully we'll see a bit of improvement.

"It does look a very decent race."

Mark Johnston also fires a couple of bullets at the lucrative prize, with runaway Rosebery Handicap winner Salutation joined by stable companion Sennockian Star, who ran well to finish third at Pontefract a fortnight ago.

Johnston said: "I think I have two good chances with two in-form horses.

"They are both capable of running well at this level."

The 17-runner field is headed by the Kevin Ryan-trained Clayton, who won the same Pontefract race in which Sennockian Star was placed.

Other contenders include William Haggas' Rock Choir, Luca Cumani's Ajman Bridge and Hi There from Richard Fahey's yard.
