Jacko Has Solid Claims Despite Being Billed A Roughie

By Tony Megahey

The team of Keith Dryden and Scott Collings will be relying on the toughness and versatility of recent impressive winner Prince Jacko when he tackles Saturday's $60,000 TAB Highway Handicap (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens.

And the duo has insider’s knowledge of one of the more fancied runners in And There is More who they previously trained.

And There Is More ($11 into $8 on TAB fixed odds) was previously in the Dryden and Collings stable and they had high hopes after an impressive winning double. But disappointingly, he was transferred to Terry Robinson’s Shoalhaven stable.

Robinson is a five-time Highway winner and will have And There is More primed on Saturday.

“That’s racing, we won two races with him, had a big opinion and he’ll be real hard to beat Saturday,” Dryden offered. “But so will the Dunn stable obviously,” said Dryden.

Matthew Dunn has entered Lifesaver ($4.60 equal favourite) and Never So Sirius ($8.50).

“They’re real hard races to win, but Prince Jacko has put two strong wins together carrying big weights. This is tougher but he’s well placed in a class two with the claim.

"He’s just so genuine, handles any surface, and he’s adaptable to however the race is run. We’ll get a guide with Andrew how the track is playing early in the day and then decide on tactics.”

Prince Jacko ($41), coming off powerful wins on heavy tracks in lesser class at Goulburn and the ACT synthetic, will have his 56.5kg impost reduced by Andrew Adkins 1.5kg claim.
