Mickael Barzalona is to have his first ride for the yard on IRON CONDOR at Lingfield on Wednesday. Connections are hoping their French will be good enough to give the correct instructions! The horse should have a good chance, the only unknown is how he will handle the track. He has won twice at Kempton on the polytrack so he handles the surface well and the distance of 1 mile 5 furlongs will be fine for him. He is a big, long striding horse though so it may not be the ideal track for him. He is a top of the ground horse on turf so this prolonged wet spell is not in his favour . As he is fit and ready to run he may as well run on the polytrack and this was the only suitable race for him.
