Mark Johnson on retirement

Thursday

3.00 - Poet's Society

Split Seniority and Original Choice at Glorious Goodwood in early August (second), but below-par behind a stablemate on the AW at Chelmsford more latterly; fine overall record (10-56) but not easy to predict sometimes and others better handicapped.

3.00 - Love Dreams

Out of sorts since making all to win a 7f Class 2 handicap at Goodwood in May (good to firm), and hard to consider off 3lb higher with plenty to find with the likes of Seniority and Afaak.
