The first selection of the afternoon is the Novices Handicap Hurdle over three miles and we are going for the mare So Said I for Colin Tizzard.
The five year old learnt her trade in bumpers, being seen three times and progressively getting better, with a good second the finish up in March.
Moved over hurdles this term the mare went to Newton Abbot in May and finished a fair fourth in a good Novices' Hurdle behind the likeable Dragon Bones.
Stepped up to 2m6f for her next start at Stratford she finished a good second behind Gazette Bourgeoise, but last time out reversed the form at Exeter when up in trip and receiving weight.
She makes her handicap debut today off a mark of 109 which looks very lenient and showing her staying ability last time out she will get this extended trip no problem.
