Flirting Around could command attention
Tuesday 24 June 1997
The handicap is headed by Jiyush, who finished seventh in the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot last Thursday, but the weights will go up by at least 6lb if he is an absentee.
Flirting Around finished seventh, seven lengths behind Windsor Castle, in the Group Three Queen's Vase over two miles at Ascot last week. Even if the weights are not raised further and Flirting Around has to carry 7st10lb on the day - 9lb more than his true handicap weight of 7st1lb - he can meet Windsor Castle, who has picked up an 8lb penalty for that success, on 6lb better terms.
Shaft Of Light catches the eye at 20-1 with Coral - William Hill and Ladbrokes quote Lord Huntingdon's charge at 10-1, while Transom is 14- 1 with Coral and the Tote - Ladbrokes offer just 8-1.
Siege Perilous is 25-1 with Ladbrokes and the Tote - Coral and William Hill go 16-1, while Lord Jim is 20-1 with Coral and William Hill - Ladbrokes offer just 14-1.
