Quick Returner Has Conditions To Win Again

Backing a young horse on a winning roll can be profitable and CHAMPAGNE MARENGO fits the bill this evening. A real stayer in the making, he struggled over distances from seven furlongs to one mile and a quarter before showing improved form with the application of cheek-pieces and an extra half mile at Wetherby in May.

He was beaten eight lengths and then followed that up with a second and three wins, the last an easy five lengths victory at Ascot last Friday.

Spargrove, just beaten by him in his penultimate race, sluiced home yesterday. He raced off a mark of 65 last week and is up just 1lb today, and as he's won on soft, standard and good to firm the conditions won't be a problem. Andrea Atzeni, who won on him at Chelmsford is back in the plate.

WELL FUNDED, who beat FANTASTIC MS FOX into third at Doncaster a month ago is 1lb worse off with her for three-quarters of a length, but is top rated on BTO figures and being backed and ROAD TO PARIS has the race profile of a Prescott maiden to handicap winner but has so far shown little form. At a short 2.3 on the exchanges, Champagne Marengo might seem value around 7.15 this evening.
