Hot to Trot: Jonjo back from break in top form
Ben Fearnley picks out three in-form trainers - both over jumps and on the Flat - that it could pay to follow over the coming weeks.
Such is the portion of this season that Eve Johnson Houghton has carried our ‘sun’ Flag next to her name on the Timeform race card, it is somewhat surprising that she is featuring in this column for the first time in late-August. With 31 winners on the board and nearly £250,000 in prize money already in the bag, 2016 is set to be her most successful training season yet. Scarlet Dragon has been Johnson Houghton’s most high-profile success so far this season, bagging over £50,000 in prize money with three wins in competitive handicaps. He may well be seen next in the Dubai Duty Free Handicap at Newmarket in a few weeks’ time. Interesting entrants for Johnson Houghton in the coming days include Becca Campbell, who has been progressing well recently and is surprisingly entered in a seller at Goodwood on Sunday. Becca Campbell had to pick her way through the field in the final two furlongs at Leicester last time and hit the line with running left, and she could be capable of better yet under more favourable circumstances. What About Carlo is a possible runner at Epsom on Monday. He has been below on his last four starts, including in the likes of the Wolferton Handicap at Royal Ascot and the John Smith’s Cup at York, but has dropped to just 1 lb above his last winning mark as a result. He goes well at Epsom’s unique track – his two best efforts this season have come over the same C&D – and could be worth chancing at a likely big price if he does take up that entry.
