A big win for fans of the blogs "Horses to watch out for" page when Little Garcon won today at Ascot off a rating of 90, here's what I wrote back in July in my regular handicap post "Up a bit, down a bit" :-
As expected Bated Breath went up 10lb for his facile win at Haydock in the 3yo Class 2 Handicap over 6f and he is now on 105. Afterwards Roger Charlton said we may see him in next years Sprint Cup here but later in the week he entered him for this years race. I thought Little Garcon was unlucky not to get closer and he remains on 88 which is a very fair mark that can be exploited on his next run. The race itself was run in a decent time only slightly slower than the Class 2 Conditions Stakes won by his stablemate Genki 30 minutes later. Charlton is now eyeing up a 0-105 Handicap at Newmarket in August however he has stressed that he wont run him on fast ground again this season.
This result followed up Captain Ramius who won at 18/1 at Chester on 10th September 2010.
