The lesser experienced runner in the race for Archie Watson, who isn’t exactly known for his jump’s horses, but he will look to test his hand with his smart former flat horse Stag Horn.
He couldn’t have been asked to do much more on his Hurdle debut last time out at Leicester, when sent off a well backed odds on favourite.
He did look slightly novicey when jumping that day, but that was his first run over obstacles, however what really caught the eye was he made all to win by just under 2 lengths, where the horse in behind has won nicely at Plumpton since these two met.
That horse also had more experience over the obstacles when winning on his hurdle debut at Fontwell in November (Which was before him, and Stag Horn met at Leicester) so looks a nice prospect for the Anthony Honeyball team in his own right.
With the form being franked and him looking like a nice staying hurdler, with the run under his belt he could come on for the run and provide Archie Watson with his biggest jumps win to date.
Won on only start over hurdles in fine style, second has won since. Did jump novicey on debut however so that may catch him out against more experienced rivals.
