- Swinton Insurance Handicap Hurdle (Class 3)
- 1m 7f 65y,
- 4 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Won five times over hurdles in Ireland but unseated when in rear and tailed off since joining this yard. Plenty to prove handicap wise but this represents a drop in class.
Hat-trick of novice wins last season before outclassed in the Supreme Novices. Struggled since in three starts but dropped 10lb in the handicaps as a result so better can be predicted now.
C&D maiden winner last May on good to firm won a 2m3f handicap on soft at Taunton latest. Drop in class no issue in small field and fancied strongly just 5lb higher against out of form rivals.
Won twice over hurdles for Philip Hobbs but on a nine-race losing run as he joins this yard. Capable off this mark if new surroundings revive his interest.
