Unsurprisingly, the unexposed three-year-old made the most of a lenient mark earned by running over seven furlongs (twice) and a mile before he stepped up to 12 furlongs successfully last week – capitalising on a rating of just 57.
A penalty may not be enough to stop him following up and he has five more entries this week as his trainer looks to exploit some generous handicapping.
However, at around even money, Wolfcatcherjack is a little on the short side for me and there could be some value in Jamie Osborne’s filly TOMORROW MYSTERY (Kempton, 5.15) to upset the Prescott master plan.
The daughter of Nathaniel is hardly over-raced herself and she recorded a career best on the Tapeta at Wolverhampton when hammering seven fillies in handicap company last week.
She is forced to concede chunks of weight to her main market rival today, but her times on the synthetic surfaces have been excellent and she could spring a mini surprise.
However, there looked tons in the tank when the Fastnet Rock filly thumped some decent rivals over course and distance in the first-time blinkers and, if the blinds work as well second time round, she must surely be hard to beat in what appears a weaker race.
