John’s Call, a Spa Horse of Renown

Can't believe I'm writing this or that it might actually happen but there seems to be some pace signed on in today's 1-5/8 miles featured John's Call at the Spa.

Whether that pace develops or not, or whether the rider uses his modicum of tactical speed, we believe Renown (10-1) have more than a puncher's chance to upset.

A good third in this race last year, he returns with similar spacing and a switch to Julien Leparoux whose few Spa runners have acquitted themselves well. Whatever the tactics, the decisions are Julien's to make one he leaves the barrier.

Taking Renown to win at 5-1 or greater, and key-boxing exactas with Nessy (4-1) and Red Rifle (9-5), both getting important weight concessions from the choice.
