SAFE VOYAGE will have to carry a penalty when he returns to his favourite track this weekend. John Quinn's eight-year-old has won three of his four starts around Haydock Park, including an easy win in this race in 2019. Safe Voyage's only defeat here came on his reappearance last year, where he lost out to Space Blues by a neck.
After that, Quinn's stable star enjoyed an excellent campaign, beating One Master in the City Of York Stakes before shouldering a penalty when winning the Group Two Boomerang Stakes at the Curragh. After a very narrow defeat to One Master in the Prix de la Foret, Safe Voyage ended his campaign at the Breeders' Cup, where he really struggled over a mile on quick ground.
On his reappearance in the Lockinge, Safe Voyage struggled again, dropping tamely out of contention as Palace Pier turned on the afterburners. Yet, seven furlongs, on soft ground, around Haydock is the ideal setting for Safe Voyage's return to form, and it's very hard to make a case against the current market leader.
With Thanks received a 14-pound hike in the ratings after winning a Group Three in Ireland last November - despite the fact that the three horses who placed behind her had amassed just four wins from 28 starts between them.
Glorious Journey seems to do all his winning during the second half of the season, and Toro Strike - who could be a massive player in the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot and the Lennox at Goodwood - would prefer the ground to be a lot quicker.
River Nymph and Njord are unproven in pattern company. Kinross has never reached his full potential, while Brad The Brief and Queen Jo Jo have both looked poor in recent starts.
All in all, it's very hard to get away from Safe Voyage. I doubt whether a few days of sunshine will turn the ground against him, and 3/1 could look very long come the start of this year's John Of Gaunt.
