Thoughts on Jack Blane

February 24, 2017

Jack Blane runs at Wolverhampton in the 8.15. George Downing rides the now gelded three year in the five furlong maiden. Jack Blane ran an encouraging enough race against experienced rivals first time out at Chepstow but previews disappointing next time around at Pontefract. He picked up a small niggle that required a bit of time off subsequently so was gelded as well. There was a slight concern as a two year old that he wasn’t very big, but he has actually grown and although he is never going to be a big horse concerns about training on have been allayed. He isn’t the finished article and will come on for tonight’s race having been brought back into work patiently. 

An intriguing contest with Jack the Truth likely to improve from debut when he looked short on experience. Lostock and Logi both showed potential early on as two year olds but have a bit to prove after disappointing subsequently. Zavikon also returning from some time away from the track might ran well enough when last seen that he probably rates the most reliable guide to the form.
