Betting

Forecast

City Tour (5/2), Lightning Attack (9/2), Jackamundo (5/1), Iron Mike (15/2), Spirit Of Lund (8/1), Silver Dust (17/2), Call Him Al (12/1), Beechwood Izzy (20/1), Staycation (25/1), Uncle Norman (28/1), Kimberley Girl (50/1), Popping Corks (50/1)

Verdict

Richard Fahey saddles three runners, and the market will probably sort out the pecking order with regards Silver Dust, Lightning Attack and Call Him Al. Jackamundo is evidently strong in the stamina department, clearly appreciating stepping up in trip when making a winning handicap debut at Redcar in September. He should be positively involved despite a subsequent 6lb rise in the weights, whilst another for the short-list in an open contest is Beechwood Izzy. However, the more speculative shout goes up for the handicap debutante CITY TOUR on ground which is likely to be riding faster (more suitable) than he has experienced thus far.

  2. Jackamundo
