Third Outing Looks The One For Two Year Old To Break His Duck

The PJ McDonald mount in the toteJACKPOT At betfred.com Novice Median Auction Stakes at Chelmsford this evening is THE BRITISH LION and he looks to have a favourite's chance to better his runner up spot last time out. That effort was at Newcastle on the all weather, where he was going well when hampered, lost a couple of positions and then ran on to be beaten just two lengths to Royal Prospect before being promoted to second. The actual second, Midsummer Knight had been runner up in his previous two races and has occupied the same position in a field of eleven since, so the form stacks up. BTOPlus+ has The British Lion top on regular and speed ratings and best in a couple of categories. Johnston's colt also gets a few positives - for Sire progeny at the course and trainer performance over course and distance where he is 26% better than expected and for trainer/jockey combination of 24% better than expected. ARTIESHOW is next best on BTO while the William Haggas newcomer MOVE SWIFTLY is second favourite with the layers. The Lion is 15/8 with SkyBet and Bet365.
