Issue 171 – Jodie’s Jottings

Down the bottom of the weights I am prepared to take a chance on the three-year-old Repetitio.

I was quite taken with Nigel Hawke’s gelding when I saw him at last month’s BetVictor meeting. He’s only a medium-sized sort, as you would expect being by Pour Moi, but he’s very powerfully built and ran a commendable race in the competitive Grade 2 JCB Triumph Hurdle Trial which didn’t go unnoticed by the handicapper, who put him up 7lbs to a mark of 125.

Previously he won a modest handicap from a mark of 106 at Newton Abbot by an easy seven lengths but he should appreciate the livelier ground than he encountered last time and he runs off a feather weight thanks to the weight-for-age allowance.

(Won 8/1)
