Ajig can dance his way into hearts of Leicester punters AJIG can put Leicester punters in a commanding position by winning the opening race of the day.
Eve Johnson Houghton's inmate is one of nine runners in a distinctly moderate renewal of the Widmerpool Handicap, with this transition to just shy of 10 furlongs likely to unlock previously unseen potential.
The three-year-old filly has nonetheless been in fine fettle this summer, and has perhaps not gained the rewards her consistency has deserved.
She has won a race this year, though, when easing home in a one-mile handicap on the Kempton Polytrack.
Ajig then showed back at Kempton a few weeks later that the handicapper has probably not got her number yet when she was not beaten too far over a furlong shorter.
The daughter of Bahamian Bounty suffered a rough passage towards the line, which did her no favours, but it was the seven-furlong trip which proved her undoing.
Ajig lacked the early boot to go with the protagonists that day, which explains why she has now made the rise in trip.
