7.55 Leicester: Class 4 Handicap, 7f
You have to be wary of the three year olds in this race, one of them might be able to step up his or her game, but it’s practically impossible to look beyond top weight Mezzotint.
He didn’t have things going right on a couple of occasions lately, but judged on his Newmarket performance last month when only 3l behind Athletic in a hot Handicap, despite having been badly hampered that day, proved he is still up to his mark.
He’s been dropped to a career lowest mark off 78 now while still capable of running up to something in the mid 80’s – he’s also dropped into a much easier race here today. With conditions very much to suit and a CD success to his name, he’s a handful for anyone in this race.
