- Robinson Manufacturing Roof Truss Handicap Hurdle (Class 3)
- 3m 1f 10y, Good
- 5 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Has some moderate efforts this spring to put behind him, although the latest at Doncaster was in better company than this. Might be happier with a bit of cut too, and all in all, not hard to look elsewhere for the winner.
On a very fair mark these day, but hard to win with at the best of times and another that might prefer softer ground than he's likely to encounter today. Tries a tongue-tie for the first time, which may help, but risky.
Reverts to hurdles after a short spell chasing (didn't take to it), looks regressive in the main but finished close enough to the winner at Exeter back in February to think he's not completely gone at the game yet. Has chances, with trip ideal.
Hard ride that has won a couple of times, threw the towel in a bit quickly at Plumpton last time and chance really depends on how cooperative he's feeling today. No guarantees this trip suits either.
Twice a winner in the spring and she stays this trip well, bit below par when made favourite at Worcester last time but in some ways, she has far less question marks about her than a few, and could easily bounce back here.
Last Year's Winner
Little Millie (11/4), For Good Measure (3/1), Francky Du Berlais (3/1), Goodbye Dancer (7/2), Three Ways (12/1)
