American Gigolo doubled his score on the flat with a straight forward success in a Novice Stakes at a Kempton on Monday night.

 

I was tempted to pitch him into a handicap after he won his maiden at Lingfield until I discovered that the handicapper would not give him a mark until he had a third run.

 

Fran Berry kept things simple on Monday, had him in a handy position from the start and was never in danger once he pressed on early in the straight with Give Him Time taking second place close home.

 

Give Him Time, trained by Nick Gifford, has now finished close behind American Gigolo on all three occasions they have met.

 

American Gigolo is racing on the flat at the moment as he doesn’t handle the prevailing testing conditions over jumps.

 

He is going the right way, is only six and has lots of options in the months ahead through the spring and summer.

 

Depending on the ground in a month’s time he could run again on the flat or switch back to hurdles.
