15:45 Sandown Fri 17 February 2017
Winner of a couple of minor races on the level for Marcus Tregoning. Followed up an inauspicious hurdling debut with a more encouraging run next time. Faces a stiff task here but worth watching for his future prospects when going handicapping.
Comes from same family as the 1996 Pendil Chase winner Draborgie. Yard do not have a particularly strong record here with their hurdlers but he is worth watching for the future.
Picked up from Karl Burke for 160,000GBP. Built on the promise of his hurdling debut to collect a minor race at Taunton next time. Stable have won two of the last eight runnings of this.
Steady improver on the Flat who stepped up from his hurdling bow to finish a creditable third at Plumpton last time. This requires much more.
Last Year's Winner
Percy Street (1/7), Early Du Lemo (11/2), Gregarious (9/1), Yalltari (14/1), Oskar Denarius (33/1)
