An Easy Shift for Factory Time in Bath Maiden

Things seem to look good for our two year olds in 2011 as our third juvenile win of the season and our second winner on debut came in the form of Factory Time at Bath.

The son of first season sire Baltic King made light work of his opponents in taking the median auction maiden last night, travelling nicely throughout and picking up to win by two lengths under Chris Catlin.

 This victory maintains Jaber Abdullah's 100% record with his two year olds this season (OK, so he's only had two runners!), but it was the nature of his victory that made Mick smile.

"He's a smasher - he's a six furlong horse already, but I had no qualms about sending him this early over five. Chris couldn't pull him up and he'll improve hugely for that experience. He was up against two with previous experience which is always a boost and he has that touch of class.

"Regardless of how far they might need in time, if a horse has quality, he should win over the shortest trip.

"He's a big horse who can only get better."
