Jackson not certain for July
Published: 12 February 2013
Jackson will attempt to put his disappointing J & B Met run behind him in the KZN summer season but this time he may give the Vodacom Durban July a miss.
Brett Crawford said: “Jackson is now having a break and we will then discuss his options but at the moment I would think he will have a Durban campaign. However I’m not sure about the July as we may just look for suitable weight-for-age races.” The four-year-old started 18-10 favourite for last year’s July but dropped out tamely in the straight and finished with only three behind him. No reason has ever been found for that flop, but Crawford now more than ever believes that the colt managing only fifth when 2-1 favourite for the J & B Met lies in the L’Ormarin’s Queen’s Plate three weeks earlier.
