Undefeated Zapatillas now 104
Sophomore Sprint (Listed)
Undefeated ZAPATILLAS has seen his rating raised from 88 to 104 after he recorded a second win from as many outings in the Listed Sophomore Sprint for three-year-olds over 1200m at Kenilworth on Saturday. The Handicappers felt it highly unlikely that 3rd placed CAPTAIN’S KNOT would have run below his rating by finishing where he did in a contest of this nature and therefore used him as the line horse, which leaves his rating unchanged on 96. Runner-up SAFE RETURN has had his rating raised from 98 to 103, while 4th finisher XAVION goes up from 91 to 95. There were increases also for FIFTY FIVER, who is up from 84 to 91, and for 6th placed MASKED VIGILANTE, who was raised slightly from 87 to 88 in order to make him rated equal to 7th finisher ON THE ROAD AGAIN.
The only drop was for YOU KNOW WHO, who is down from 87 to 85.
