Saturday 6 June
Dead Or Alive who beat Kikos at Huntingdon late last month, franked the form with a win at Worcester this afternoon despite his revised handicap mark kicking in. His trainer Tim Vaughan had tried to take advantage of a 4lb lower mark earlier in the week but he had unseated at the first. Well backed today, he was slightly fortunate as his only rival made a bad mistake two out, but the two were well clear and he is obviously a horse on the upgrade and Kikos lost nothing in defeat to him. Kikos is in good form and we may step him back in trip as a bit of an experiment at Uttoxeter at the end of the month.
