Flags: Horse In Focus, Top-Rated
Arctic Ambition, on his first start since joining Gordon Elliott from Robert Tyner, failed to see his race out in a three-mile handicap chase at Down Royal last month but he clearly benefitted from that outing and showed improved form to land a two-and-three-quarter mile handicap chase at Thurles 12 days ago. Arctic Ambition again travelled smoothly, moving like a well-handicapped horse, and he saw things out better than he had at Down Royal to draw three lengths clear. He switches to hurdling here and is able to race off a mark 10 lb lower than the one he defied at Thurles, while he remains open to further improvement for this yard after only a couple of starts, so he holds strong claims.
