Dobbin has tough task on Missile

Click to follow
While Richard Dunwoody rides One Man in the King George VI Chase at Sandown at Saturday, the grey's previous partner, Tony Dobbin, teams up with Unguided Missile in the Newton Handicap Chase at Haydock. Both horses are trained by Gordon Richards, who retains Dobbin as his stable jockey.

Dunwoody, who has twice won on Unguided Missile, showed particular skill to win the Betterware Cup on him at Ascot. Dobbin, therefore, has a hard act to follow.

Among his Haydock opponents on Saturday could be Big Matt, Easy Buck, Jodami, Miinnehoma and Morceli, who have all missed recent engagements because of bad weather.
