Mick Channon, quoted in today’s Post, describes his handicapper, South Cape, as "very consistent."
South Cape’s last four runs have seen him finish 12th of 19, 19th of 19 (beaten 114 lengths), 16th of 28 and 1st of 13.
It’s on a par with Tom Segal’s justification in yesterday’s paper for preferring Colorado Rapid to Artimino in the Britannia. Among other things, Artimino "rather showed his hand when winning easily at Newmarket last time."
Artimino was up 7lbs for winning at Newmarket. Colorado Rapid was up 10lbs for winning last time out at Pontefract.
For a Mick Channon horse, that is very consistent!<br>Interviewed by Richi Persad after his 50/1 winner in the first:<br>RP "Beaten in a small race at Folkestone, and then comes on to win a race at Royal Ascot. How is that possible?"<br>MC "We do it all the time. Haven’t you looked at our records?"<br>How very, very, true that is!!!
