CALL ME VIC couldn't match the pace of Rainbow Peak when trying to make all at Doncaster on his hurdling debut but Tom George's bumper and points winner doesn't appear to be facing anything of the winner's calibre in this and should go one better. My Wigwam Or Yours has proved expensive to follow so far and still has to prove he stays the longer trip but there should be more to come from Doncaster runner-up Tsar Alexandre while Jimmy The Jetplane and Money For Nothing have hinted at ability. Alan King trains the latter but Choc Thornton prefers stablemate Our Pollyanna.
