Eltezam can claim kempton cash.

ELTEZAM has yet to strike for Amanda Perrett but his time can come in the ROA/Racing Post Owners' Jackpot Handicap at Kempton.

The four-year-old only won once in 10 starts for Richard Hannon but was good enough to finish third in the Coventry and fourth in the July Stakes as a juvenile, so it is easy to see why connections persisted.

However, after falling down the ratings, Eltezam changed hands for 32,000 guineas in July and has managed to place four times in seven starts for Perrett.

His recent second three-quarterlength second at Chelmsford was a decent effort, especially considering the 10-furlong trip he faced was beyond his ideal.

Switching back to a mile here off a mark of 80, Eltezam has plenty in his favour.

Made Of Honour is an interesting contender in the 100% Profit Boost At Fillies' Handicap after scoring in France last time.

Karl Burke's runner was last seen in Britain racing off a mark of 77 and despite subsequently winning a minor heat on the all-weather at Chantilly, the handicapper has seen fit to drop her 3lb.

Our Man In Havana is the pick in the Nursery Handicap at Lingfield.

He switched to the care of Richard Price in October and has clearly been suited by the move as he has won once and finished second in two starts for that handler so far.

He only had a neck to spare in a moderate Wolverhampton contest last time, but there was much to like about his attitude that day.
