Sandown: Recon Mission
Started the season rated 102 but handicapper has relented. Could potentially grab the far rail and dominate, has speed for 5f but also won over further. Has got the cut in the ground he needs.
Recon Mission is versatile regards trip, he’s got the early pace for 5f but he needs cut in the ground. His three victories have come on going described as ‘good to yielding’, ‘good to soft’ and ‘heavy’ and he should get ideal conditions at Sandown.
He’s been running well this season without getting his head in-front and have started in June rated 102 the handicapper now has him off a more winnable 96.
He set up the race at Chester last week but a drop down in trip and a potentially favourable draw could find him hard to pass.
