Imperial Alex - 15:00 Carlisle
Flag: Top Rated, Horse In Focus
Imperial Alex was well beaten on his first three starts over hurdles, but he was well backed, and produced a much improved display to open his account on handicap debut at Warwick last month, as expected well suited by a step up in trip and leaving the impression he has plenty more to offer. You could have called him the winner some way out that day, always travelling well and only doing what was required in the closing stages. Imperial Alex had plenty more in hand than the official margin suggests and he can make light of a 5 lb rise.
