    He’s a horse I’ve followed for a while now, and he’s certainly been around the block, but for all those miles on the clock, I reckon Spark Plug is as good as ever.

    One significant negative is that he’s risky Antepost, as he’s often pulled late on if the ground isn’t ideal, but the main negative is form at the meeting. He’s always came up short on his four previous attempts, and even has a “fall” to his name, having came down in The Royal Hunt Cup.

    Maybe not his meeting then, but the trip is perfect, he’s looked as good as ever, he’s on a decent mark, and Oisin Murphy is booked.

    You know what you’re getting into, he could be pulled half an hour before the off, but I’m happy to have an early go.

    I really wanted to see Protected Guest at the meeting as well, but he must be a doubt to sneak in here.

    Spark Plug 25’s Each Way

    Baghdad 6/1

    Slightly shorter now with another Hugh Taylor tip-up (annoying!) but think beast should take all the beating again. Won this nicely last season, looked as good as ever when winning LTO & a nice wide draw in 12. Corgi has the swing with the weights but Baghdad is a typical Johnston horse that just does enough.

    Agreed kev

    Took a bit of 7/1 a couple of days ago, from what I remember he pulled like a train last time out and won snugly anyway

    So he should be even better in this big field

    I’ve dutched Baghdad and Fujaira Prince both at 5/1

    Think they’re both better than handicappers
