A couple of jockeys with famous names inherited from talented fathers, Jonjo O’Neill Jr and Cieren Fallon (‘C’ not ‘K’) can be sources of good bets until they lose their allowances, and the latter can show this today on DREAM MAGIC in the Grand Theatre Wolverhampton Handicap over a mile and a half.
The gelding is a regular visitor here and has won twice from 17 attempts, the latest just before Christmas in 2017.
He showed his well-being with a win at Lingfied two outings ago, when equipped with blinkers for the first time.
He looked to be on a downward curve until that gold medal but the aids rekindled his enthusiasm with him running fifth here on his last outing, carrying 7 lbs more than in the victory.
Fallon’s claim puts him back on his Lingfield winning mark of 62 and the blinkers are back on again.
