jaggytastic on Mountain King | Tipped at 9/2
In the last 2 years Elliot/Johnson are 5/23 in handicap chasers at Perth whilst Candlish/Quinlan are 4/5 and FOB/Brennan are 4/13. However August is a less good month for the Jennie Candlish handicap chasers whilst it is ok for Gordon and better for FOB. FOB's Tangolan rating of 129 is up 3 from his July C&D win on good. Candlish's Theflyingportrait is rated 140 up 5 from June's Aintree win over 2 miles. Elliot's Mountain King is rated 130 which is 3 below its peak winning rating of 133 when it beat Tangolan at Perth over 2 and a half miles in September last year - a race it won by a length and a half carrying 13lbs more than Tangolan whilst now it carries just 1lb more. Mountain King has won on Good, GtS, Soft & Heavy Ground so if the rain comes he's the more versatile performer.
