Verdict

MISSILE COMMAND was backed as if defeat were out of the question at Wolverhampton so with a lighter wallet and a heavy heart, we take him to recoup those losses this afternoon. The stable are also responsible for Arowana. His dam was a prolific winner over five and six furlongs so the market must be monitored closely. Brave Battle rates 64 and it would be no surprise to see Jimmy Fortune attempting to make plenty of use of him. Frozen Over is related to winners over a variety of trips whilst Isingy Red probably needs further and with his trainer boasting a modest strike rate with his juveniles this term, the percentage call is regrettably one of opposition.
