You had to be impressed with the finishing kick of Just In Time to win at Kempton on Wednesday evening – he was 5lb higher than when scoring at Goodwood previously – and it will be interesting to see the handicapper’s reaction when the new ratings are released next Tuesday.

Now we look for the Normandie Stud’s Nathan to keep up the good work at Chester today. He only joined us in midsummer, yet has managed two wins and a second from three runs for Barbury, and, though he is 6lb higher than when winning at Newbury last month, Alan reports him as having headed up the M6 in great nick.
