He may go out after this. I’d like to spell him and have him back up again next season as he will do a nice job.”

MANINTHEMIRROR (Race 3, 1950m mob, Sam Ottley) “He’s back because the handicapping system should suit him rated a 44 non-winner. But the clubs continue to combine all the maidens together. He should be in a 40-47 or 40-48, but the bandwiths are too wide. It’s shocking how this keeps happening, and this horse will be a victim of it this week.”
