- Racing Excellence Training Series Conditional Jockeys' Novices' Hurdle (Class 4)
- 2m 4f 110y, Good to Firm (Good in places. Home Straight: Good to Soft, Soft in places)
- 4 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Unbeaten under both codes since joining this trainer, winning five off the reel on the Flat, from 1m6f-2m½f, mostly on good to firm, and then walking over here last time. Penalised for that, but no reason why he can't give another very good account.
Scored at Wetherby (2m3½f, good) in November, and bettered that under a penalty over the same C&D last time. May still be more to come, though, there will probably need to be if he is to get back to winning ways again this time.
Improved on his Newton Abbot bumper debut when introduced to hurdles at Chepstow (2m, soft) last month. Stayed on well there, so this extra half-mile looks in his favour. If he handles fast ground he could go close.
Irish point-to-point winner who, like some of her sire's progeny, showed a quirky side when jinking right on her rules debut at Warwick (2m5f, good) last month. Showed some ability there and has claims in receipt of weight here.
Last Year's Winner
She Mite Bite (4/5), Skidoosh (11/4), Dark Episode (6/1), Bailarico (8/1)
