- Newton Abbot Racecourse On Facebook Selling Hurdle (Class 5)
- 2m 2f 110y, Good (Good to Firm in places)
- 7 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Type that his new yard do well with and they may be getting to grips with him now following decent effort in a Market Rasen selling hurdle last month. Enters calculations.
Just 1-16 over timber, scoring over 2m on soft ground at Uttoxeter in April 2017 when rated 84. Not a lot of positives to be taken from three Flat runs recently before near 20L hurdles defeat at Sligo last month.
Now 10-years-old, started 2017 with a win at Exeter over 2m5½f, taking advantage of 80 rating. Most of subsequent efforts were well short of that however and returns from 313 days off for this. Market to reveal more.
Hasn't built on a promising start in this sphere at Wetherby in October last year for Nigel Twiston-Davies. First outing for new trainer comes in this grade and not one to get carried away with, seemingly.
Five-time Flat winner on a sound surface rated in the mid-50s, beaten 23L last month in a C&D maiden hurdle on first start over jumps.
Six-time Flat winner has shown a fair level of form in four starts over hurdles, including in first-time cheekpieces over 2m5½f here in July. Failed to justify favouritism at Worcester since (no headgear). Blinkers tried this time, may do better.
Five-time winner on the Flat who stays well. Belated start to his hurdling career, but this is not the strongest of races and he could be a threat if taking to jumping.
