Akehurst fans on red alert; RACING.

REG AKEHURST'S runners were always feared in major handicaps and his son Jon can show he is a chip off the old block by lifting the Stanley Racing Great Metropolitan Stakes with Red Ramona at Epsom tomorrow.

This mile-and-a-half event sees Red Ramona make his second appearance for Akehurst junior, who trains near the track at South Hatch stables, since being bought out of Roger Charlton's yard.

Akehurst went to 50,000 guineas to secure the son of Rudimentary and it will take much more than this pounds 14,000 prize to make Red Ramona look a bargain.

However, victory tomorrow will certainly be a step in the right direction and Red Ramona looks the type to do well for his new stable this season.
