Cambridgeshire back on agenda for Premio Loco
A TILT at next month's Totesport.com Cambridgeshire is back onthe agenda for the fast-improving Premio Loco after a rethink by trainer Chris Wall and connections over the past few days.
The announcement has resulted in the four-year old being reinstated at 10-1 by the sponsors for the first leg of the autumn double on October 4.
Premio Loco was originally ruled out of the cavalry charge after beating Cape Hawk in fine style in the London Mile Series Final at Kempton. Despite having his odds slashed in half after that two-and-a-half-length success, Wall was far from keen to commit his charge to Newmarket.
However, the trainer said on Monday: "The Cambridgeshire is now back on for Premio Loco after a rethink over the weekend. At the time of his Kempton win it was raining torrents at Newmarket and the prospect of soft ground on the Rowley Mile was not appealing. Since then, it has started to dry up and the horse will run unless it's soft."
He added: "It's atough race but it gives Premio Loco a last chance to run in a handicap with a 4lb penaltybefore he goes up 10lb for his latest win. It makes sense to run before going onto bigger things and George Baker will ride if available."
Damian Walker of Totesport said: "It's great news that Premio Loco is back in the Cambridgeshire and he looks a progressive sort. We have re-introduced him into the market at 10-1 third favourite behind Perks and Swop."
