Djakadam must return to his finest type

He had earlier made a promising reappearance when second to Sizing John within the John Durkan Chase.

Proprietor Wealthy Ricci stated: “Djakadam has a number of inquiries to reply. I believed his run first day out was excellent. as he appeared massive to me.

“I was hoping that he and Sizing John can write that last race off as coming too soon.”
