WAR ARTIST returns to action at Newbury tomorrow. He is running in the Group 3 Shadwell sponsored Hackwood Stakes over 6 furlongs. WAR ARTIST has been training very well at home and James Eustace feels that he is back to his best in terms of well being. He has not run for over a year now but he is as fit as he can get him at home. The horse is crying out to see a racecourse. Unfortunately the ground at Newbury has changed to soft since this morning. Newbury had less rain than forecast overnight but sadly has had more this afternoon. The ground is the unknown factor. There is now no alternative to running tomorrow and WAR ARTIST has to make a start somewhere. Who knows he might be equally good on soft ground as he is on fast ground! Whatever happens it will be good to see him back.
