Intended Runners For This Week 05/02/2017
lukeschembri , Sunday 05 February 2017 - 08:50:09 //

We have a relatively quite week this week with just three likely runners: Roundabout Magic, Mr Scaramanga and Presumido. 
Roundabout Magic is due to run on Wednesday, at Kempton, in the 18.20 32Red.com Handicap, over 5f. This Zebedee colt was last seen finishing last of three at Wolverhampton. He broke with his customary speed and was soon challenging for the early lead. Hollie Doyle did her best to restrain him and try to get in to the slip stream of the leader but he was always fighting for his head. He settled better after two furlongs and looked to have every chance turning in to the straight. He was still challenging in the last two furlongs but his run faded in the last furlong and he just got out stayed in the last few yards. He picked up some prize money for his syndicate members so it was not a wasted trip. He needs to learn to settle better in his race and he needs the race run very quickly in order to be able to achieve this. He is in good form at home and is likely to have a chance at his favoured trip. 
Mr Scaramanga could take his chance on Wednesday, at Kempton, in the 19.50 32Red Handicap (London Mile Series Qualifier), over 1m, with Adam Kirby booked to ride.  This recent recruit was last seen finishing last in a four runner conditions race at Newcastle. The field all went along together from an early stage with no problems and he was just tucked in to second place. He was the first one off the bridle and soon faded when the pace quickened two furlongs from home. It was a disappointing run and we would not have sent him all that way if we did not think he would have a chance. Having said that, the winner looks like he could turn in to a pattern horse so there is no way of knowing how strong that form really is. He has been dropped 9lb after his last two runs so we are hoping that he can start to get competitive in handicaps going forwards. 
Presumido could take his chance at Lingfield on Saturday. This Iffraaj gelding was last seen running at Kempton at the end of January. He was restrained and held up towards the field by Tom Marquand but always looked to be travelling well within himself.  He was still very much on the bridle turning for home and it was just a case of waiting for the cut away with his position on the rail. The gap came and it looked as though he was picking up but he got very short of room at a vital stage and it was game over after that. He has come out of the race in good order and is ready to go again over a track and trip that he likes
