Henry Adams seeks redemption in Gladness Stakes after challenging race at Meydan

The horse continued to improve and finished fourth in the Group 1 Jean-Luc Lagardere at Longchamp. The winner of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf, Unquestionable, finished second in the race, providing further validation of the form. Despite being a well-favored 9-2 shot in the UAE Derby, the horse encountered trouble and did not perform as expected.

However, it is believed that the horse has the ability to move past this performance and will not struggle with the ground conditions in the upcoming race. Joseph O’Brien has two horses in the race, both of which have uncertain conditions. One of the horses was limited to running on fast ground in the previous season, and may find the current conditions too challenging.

The other horse won its reappearance in 2022 and is expected to have a significant impact if in good shape. San Andreas, another competitor in the race, is considered a reliable runner, but the ground may be too soft for him. Yosemite Valley, trained by Donnacha O’Brien, impressed at Cork and the trainer believes that the step up to 7f will be beneficial.

Aidan O’Brien, trainer of Henry Adams, is confident in the horse’s form and ability, expressing that he would be disappointed if the horse doesn’t perform well. The horse is expected to handle the ground conditions effectively. Lastly, a horse that competed in Dubai faced difficulties and was not able to perform well.

The trainer believes that moving back to seven furlongs on grass will be more suitable for the horse, as it handles softer ground and kick-back.
