4:20 Redcar – Whitcliffe

WHITCLIFFE is an interesting runner in the Yorkshire Wonder Horse Starts Now Handicap, given his pedigree strongly suggests he will improve from two to three, as does his physique. He ran his best race last year when second to the 75-rated Rosie’s Return over 7f at Musselburgh in August. The winner was runner-up of that mark twice subsequently, and was beaten just a neck by Nuance (a Group 2 winner at Doha in February) on his final start.

Whitcliffe failed to match his maiden form in nurseries, proving too keen to last home, albeit trading short both times; those runs have merely served to see him drop in the weights, and he starts his second season off a mark of 66, which could prove lenient given his physical scope and likeable pedigree.

A half-brother to the useful 1¼m winner The Tulip, he has been gelded since last season, and it’s a big positive that of seven horses to have run for Mark & Charlie Johnston this season, five have won (the other two finished last). Kendargent’s progeny improve markedly with time, and while the sire’s strike-rate with juveniles is only around 5%, it improves to 25% with three-year-olds only in the UK; in 2021, there were nine 3-y-o’s by Kendargent to run in handicaps, producing a remarkable ten wins from just 34 runs between them.

Backing all of the yard’s runners over C&D in the past would have achieved a €451.80 profit to a €10 stake at SP, which is the icing on the cake.
