Jet can do away with letdowns

JET Away has so far fallen short of expectations, but he can right the record in York’s Garbutt & Elliott Conditions Stakes.

The four-year-old has a patchy CV, having failed to go on as expected from a Lingfield conditions win in May.

Two chances in Listed company yielded little success, |with a promising second at Goodwood cancelled out by a lacklustre ninth at Sandown.

He missed the break there but that was no excuse for a poor effort and Henry Cecil then gave him a lengthy break until pitching him back into action at Newbury last month.

There was little disgrace in finishing second to Dubai Prince, particularly as he had to concede 12lb to the winner.

That run could well turn out to be better than it first appears with time and Jet Away could now be finding his stride.

Riggins got no kind of run in the Cambridgeshire but he could gain some compensation in the Acorn Web Offset Stakes.

The seven-year-old has not tasted victory in 11 months but has been set some stiff tasks in that time, including a trip to the Dubai Carnival and runs at Royal Ascot and in Group Twos.

While all of those targets |look to be shooting a little high, Riggins is capable of winning a race such as this, particularly as he barely had chance to hit top gear at Newmarket.

Viva Diva is average at best, but a switch up in distance could work in Wolverhampton's 32Red Casino Handicap.

A granddaughter of Oaks winner Lady Carla, she found maiden company far too good but posted a slightly improved effort on her handicap bow.

She is far from a world-|beater but could improve for the slight step up in trip here.

Paul Nicholls' King Of the Night has failed to live up to his early promise but with another summer on his back he is the interesting runner in the Follow Newtonabbotrace On Twitter Handicap Hurdle at Newton Abbot.

He was well fancied for the Martin Pipe at Cheltenham but fell and was then favourite at Sandown's big meeting in April but failed to deliver.

This is obviously an easier task than either of those two races.

Altan Khan made quite an impact at Sedgefield when winning by 33 lengths on his chase debut and he can follow up in the Gen II Ofsted Outstanding Achievement Celebration Handicap Chase at Carlisle.

Altan Khan was thoroughly in control at Sedgefield and his 9lb hike in the weights looks pretty generous at this stage.
