Ben Linfoot heads to Chelmsford's evening meeting on Thursday and he's siding with a horse to be ridden by the Champion Jockey elect.


Sporting Life Daily Nap, October 17

DOMINUS has a good chance of returning to the winners' enclosure in the Irish Lotto At totesport.com Handicap at Chelmsford on Thursday (7.00).

Brian Meehan's son of Zoffany has dropped down to his last winning mark and is unexposed both on the all-weather and over seven furlongs.

His only run on the all-weather came at Chelmsford where he chased home the now 110-rated Jubiloso on her debut, while his two runs over seven yielded a win and a runner-up finish.

They were early in the year and he's been well campaigned over six furlongs since then, running well on several occasions including when winning at Haydock off a mark of 85 in July.

However, he's shaped as though a return to seven would suit in recent starts, and, back down to 85 with Oisin Murphy booked to ride, he's worth siding with in an open race.

The most recent horse to switch from Eoghan O'Neill to Mark Johntson resulted in King's Advice winning eight times in six months and while it's too much to ask something similar of ZANE DADDY, the JPS Ltd Handicap at Newcastle could be within reach.

The son of Scat Daddy had a couple of runs for O'Neill in France, showing no more than a touch of early promise, and he was relatively warm in the market on his Johnston debut at Beverley last month - an outing that effectively qualified him for a handicap mark.

That run was ultimately quite a disappointing one but the way he pulled for his head in the early stages can't have helped, especially on the rain-softened ground on the Westwood.

The winner, Sir Michael Stoute's Junooh, got handed a rating of 78 and ran a belter on his handicap bow at Nottingham on Wednesday when going down just half a length to the progressive Majestic Dawn so the form looks respectable at least.

Switching to the Tapeta surface at Newcastle promises to really suit the US-bred Zane Daddy and following Johnston's three-year-olds at this track through 2019 would have yielded a profit (+22.10 to level stakes).
