A race with some nice-looking prospects in it, the current favourite is trained by Gary Moore in the Goshen colours of Mr Steve Packham.
This son of Authorized has only had the four career starts, including a bumper win at Kempton last March, beating Walking On Air (Currently fancied in the Ballymore at the Cheltenham Festival) by 4 and a half lengths.
Although lightly raced he was very impressive on his 3rd hurdle start at Sandown last time out, jumping slightly left on occasions but he did make all and quickened superbly when running up the home straight, to win by 20 lengths.
The form in behind hasn’t been franked as yet with the other horses not running since, but the manner of his win was excellent, and he looked like a potential black type of horse in the making, showing shades of stable star Goshen who has a very good following.
An exciting prospect for a team who do superbly with these nice novices.
Very impressive winner at Sandown last time out winning by 20 lengths, from behind in his sole bumper win last March has been franked nicely and he looks a super prospect over obstacles going forward, the one to beat.
