ELJADDAAF MAY CONTINUE UPWARD CURVE

Eljaddaaf - bidding for win number seven, at Kempton today

Eljaddaaf – bidding for win number seven, at Kempton today

ELJADDAAF is the yard’s sole runner today as he bids for another victory to add to his already impressive cv with a win in the 3.10 at Kempton, an 86-105 handicap worth nearly £12k to the winner.

Eliminated from the all-weather apprentice handicap at Lingfield yesterday in which Kadrizzi was a fine fifth, the six-year-old Shamardal gelding has six successes to his name on the all-weather, including three over course and distance.

A strong pace to aim at is the key to Eljaddaaf, which he did not get last time at Chelmsford.  Today, he should get the race run to suit and at 5/1, he has strong each-way credentials for Robert Winston, for whom this is his only ride of the day.  Eltazam looks a danger for Messrs Hannon and Dettori.
