Owners Group Makes A Great Gift Handicap
Class 5 | 2m | Good (Good to Firm in places) | 8 Runners | Turf
Off time: 15:20 | Winning time: 3m 32.82s
Dual winner when with with previous trainers but yet to get off the mark for Alan King and was too free at Sandown last time. This a drop in grade but others arrive in better heart.
Seen more over hurdles last year but good third back in this sphere at Sandown last month and clearly shown this longer trip is what he wants now. May have more to come.
Two quick wins last month on return to racing and showed he can do it on turf as well when scoring over C&D on latest. Up another 5lb but probably has more to come in this sphere and warrants serious consideration.
Is known on the Flat as an AW performer but showed he can cut it on turf as well when just failing to get up over C&D last month. More to offer on grass and has to be a big player.
Second win at this track last August and only 2lb above that mark today. Did well in circumstances to finish fourth here last month as was caught too far back.
Decent handicap hurdler but better was expected on his return to this sphere at Sandown so something to prove after that though yard is in better form now.
Standout effort when second here in September but modest either side of that and hopes rest on return to this venue sparking a revival for a yard having a quiet spell.
Tailed off on both runs on the AW in the winter and need to see him in better form before supporting on that evidence.
