Locked And Loaded

Three all-weather cards and just the one over jumps this afternoon which all seems a bit odd to me, but then again if we didn’t have the artificial surfaces, we would have been very short of options recently. 

Gunlock has to give 5lb or more away to all of his rivals in the Newcastle maiden at 4.20pm but that is claimed back from the saddle by Brandon Wilkie which may make all the difference.

A once raced son of Into Mischief, he looked as if the run would do him good when sent off an 18/1 shot on his course and distance debut last month, but outran his odds to come home second to Lakota Brave. The winner franked the form with a second to the highly regarded Mahboob earlier this week at level weights, and if Karl Burke’s gelding improves as expected he may well go one better now.
