JANIKA ran a fine second in the best trial and has a good profile.

The only problem is his handicap mark of 162. He would be the highest rated winner of this by 10lbs in the last 23 years!

20 of the last 22 winners were rated 141 or less.

When we look at that weight group, the only one with a perfect profile is  CALL IT MAGIC


CALL IT MAGIC is the only one who meets all the trends criteria 

9/1 with Ladbroke, Coral and Betway
