Lingfield specialist Petite Jack could be set for a swift reappearance at the track after returning to winning ways at the weekend.

The seven-year-old was a Listed winner at the Surrey venue in his prime and took his course record to eight wins with a gutsy success over a mile and a half.

Trainer Neil King reported Petite Jack took the race in his stride and may take up an entry in a similar contest on Saturday.

“He’s in great shape and has had quite an easy time of things since,” King said.

“Things finally fell his way at last after two unlucky efforts, he’s a course and distance specialist so it was third-time lucky.”

Despite contesting the All-Weather Marathon Championship final on Good Friday last year, King has other targets in mind for the gelding this time around.

He added: “He proved he didn’t quite get the trip last year so we may aim towards a handicap at Newcastle on Good Friday.

“He could go hurdling again, but I would have to win the owners over.”
