En Meme Temps looks nicely treated on the pick of his form and worth siding with at 5/1 in the 2.10 Wetherby today now reunited with champion jockey Richard Johnson. This Tom Lacey trained five-year-old shaped quite nicely under Johnson when fourth of 12 to Good Boy Bobby at Carlisle on his second start over hurdles and backed that up with a solid five length second to Clondaw Anchor at the same venue. En Meme Temps also ran well on handicap debut over this course and distance on Boxing Day when a seven length second of 11 to Suggestion off a mark of 117 and the winner – to whom he was conceding 13lb – has won again since to be rated 120. Although he failed to back that up when a well beaten eight of 10 last time out at Newbury, En Meme Temps has since been eased 2lb in the weights and that makes him a key player in this off his revised rating of 115. It also looks significant that Johnson, who has a 32 per cent strike rate when teaming up with the yard in the past 12 months, is now back in the plate and the cheekpieces also gone on for the first time. So if bouncing back, En Meme Temps looks weighted to run a huge race in this class 4 affair.
