Varsovian – need to overcome wide draw

VARSOVIAN is the stable’s sole runner today when lining up for the lucky last at Lingfield, a 6f handicap at 3.30pm and the last time out winner needs to overcome a wide draw if he is to follow up.

Drawn eight of nine runners is not ideal but the eight times winner has been successful in half of those over course and distance and still on a winning mark, he could defy a four pound rise for his 7f success at the track earlier this month.

Weak in the market, he has each-way claims at a top priced 6/1 under three pound claimer, Jack Duern who has ridden seven winners for the stable this year.  Chief dangers would appear to be top weight Hamish McGonagain and second favourites, Art Nouvelle and Very Honest.
