Matt Brocklebank backs a well-treated runner from the Ian Williams yard as he returns to hurdles action at Huntingdon.


Sporting Life Daily Nap, November 13

  • Nap: Banditry (2.10 Huntingdon)
  • Next Best: Newtown Boy (2.00 Hereford)
  • Treble: Ashazuri (6.15 Chelmsford)

BANDITRY has improved again on the Flat this summer and can surely take full advantage of his relatively low hurdles mark before long.

Ian Williams charge wasn’t disgraced at Leicester on the Flat from a lofty mark of 102 last month and should be hard to beat in the Jo Andrews Belated Birthday Wishes Michaelmas Handicap Hurdle as he has a fitness edge over most of his rivals.

Newtown Boy looks a nice prospect for Alan King in division two of the Ron Taylor 80th Birthday British Stallion Studs EBF ‘National Hunt’ Novies’ Hurdle at Hereford.

He is likely to be better over a longer trip in the future but was sharp enough to be runner-up in his two bumpers earlier in the year and he’s open to stacks of improvement now faced with obstacles for the first time in public.

At Chelmsford, Ashazuri looks a good bet in the Bet In Play At totesport.com Handicap.

He's clearly not the easiest of rides but Rob Hornby got a good tune out of him when winning at Lingfield in June and the four-year-old is now 1lb lower after a string of fair efforts in defeat.

A positive ride looks essential for him around this course and if he gets rolling early from his good draw (stall 5) then he could be hard to peg back.
