Jack The Truth didn’t see a racecourse until last February but, after a couple of ‘sighters’ on Polytrack and Tapeta, has won his last two starts on Fibresand in convincing style and looks a decent bet to complete a hat-trick in the Betway Handicap (2.20) at Southwell on Tuesday. The son of high-class sprinter Dandy Man was ridden clear in the closing stages to win by 4 lengths on his handicap debut over 5 furlongs at the Nottinghamshire track last week and a 6lb penalty for that success may not be enough to prevent him from winning again. Connections are clearly keen to strike again while the iron is hot and his previous maiden win, over course and distance, augurs well for his return to 6 furlongs. Winning jockey Fran Berry – who’s 2-7 for the yard on the all-weather – once again takes the ride.
Selection: Southwell 2.20 Jack The Truth to win
