Saturday’s Runners

Jallota goes to Haydock on Saturday for the John Of Gaunt Stakes. We really want to get another run into him before Royal Ascot, and the trip and conditions should be perfect. He’s very fresh at home, and while we’re expect him to be competitive Ascot is very much the aim with this being a stepping stone. He is joined there by Dr Bartolo. We were pleased with his run at Newmarket last time, and hope he can progress from that.

At Newmarket we have Devil’s Cowboy, Rebel De Lope, Gunmetal and Mootaharer. Devil’s Cowboy’s race will probably be pretty competitive but he’s been working nicely enough at home. Rebel De Lope had excuses at Chester and has a very light weight here. He too has been working well. Gunmetal seems in really good form, he likes Newmarket and we’re hopeful of a good show. As he has done all his life Mootaharer hasn’t exactly been setting the gallops alight, but we’re keen to get him on the track again as he was race rusty last time after his long absence. This race should tell us a lot more about where we are heading with him.
