Mixing hurdling and the Flat rather nicely at the moment and followed up a Bangor hurdles win with a win over 1m6f back on the Flat at Nottingham. Partnered by the same pilot today under a penalty but should make another bold bid.

Unlike Fort Jefferson he was rather disappointing over hurdles last time having won well the time before at Windsor in a race that has proved strong form. Based on that form he would have a big chance here off a 6lb higher mark.

Starting to look as though he can win again having slipped below his last winning mark although he did rather pick up the pieces when 4th last time. Headgear reapplied now but looks to have work to do with a couple of these.

Won when he was with Sir Michael Stoute in 2015 but still has to prove that he has any of his old ability left after showing nothing here over 1m2f last time out. Tongue-tie goes on for the first time but has plenty to prove.

Betting

Forecast

Fort Jefferson (8/11), The Detainee (9/4), Archipeligo (11/2), Onda District (33/1)

Verdict

A penalty and a drop in trip ask a couple of questions of FORT JEFFERSON but he won very easily at Nottingham on Sunday and having also been in good form over hurdles he’s taken to follow up here at the expense of The Detainee. Although he’s won three of his last four on the Flat a disappointing hurdles run last time out rather dulls his lustre in this. Archipeligo has dropped in the weights but looks to have a fairly tough task and even taking second here would be an achievement.
  1. Fort Jefferson
  2. The Detainee
  3. Archipeligo
