built on the promise of his hurdling debut, though he was perhaps slightly flattered, going nowhere down the hill but able to pick off late a pair that had jousted for the advantage from some way out; in touch, pushed along seventh, outpaced next, rallied well straight, switched approaching last, stayed on to lead final 50 yds; he's quickly shown a useful level of form and almost certainly has more to offer, particularly as his stamina is further tested.

met her first defeat over hurdles, though this is a more solid piece of form and she acquitted herself well, up in grade and against geldings for the first time; in touch, effort before 3 out, disputed lead next, battled on willingly, but headed final 50 yds; she may yet have more to offer and will be of particular interest at this level back against her own sex.

ran well under a 5-lb penalty, his experience put to good use, though he paid late on for the tactic of harrying the favourite; tracked pace, challenged from seventh, every chance still final 50 yds, battled well; he's a useful novice, though perhaps with not much more to come, his jumping not that polished still.

upped in trip and again highly tried, failed to progress as anticipated from hurdling debut, still rough around the edges; held up, dived at sixth, pushed along 3 out, outpaced next; he remains with potential but could do with his sights lowering.

down markedly in trip, disappointed, folding quickly once off the bridle after being harried for the lead from a fair way out; led, travelled well, joined before 3 out, weakened after next.

failed to complete, though was shaping okay in the face of a stiff task, still in need of experience, when he departed; held up, not always fluent, yet to be asked for effort when fell 3 out; remains capable of better.

All 6 ran. Hurdles: 10. Race Distance Adjustment: +58 yds

Winning Owner: Mr A. D. Spence

Time: 5m 13.5s Closing Sectional: (4.15f): 61.30s (100.5%)

A competitive renewal of this Grade 2 novice, and one well up to scratch, the winner the one with the most potential to be a player for bigger prizes ahead, even if he was perhaps slightly flattered by the run of the race, the third, under a penalty as well, likely to have given him more to do had he not used up energy getting the better of the disappointing favourite.
