The first selection of the day on Saturday at Sandown comes in the Juvenile Hurdle over two miles and the horse that takes our eye is the Ian Williams trained Malakahna.
The four year old filly moved over to Britain in the summer, racing twice on the flat in France, winning on his final start at Toulouse.
Bought for €40,000 and given to Williams, she made her seasonal/hurdle/British debut at Fakenham in a Juvenile Hurdle and she showed plenty of ability to go and win by eight lengths.
Upped in class in December into a Listed Fillies' Juvenile Hurdle at Aintree she was fifth of nine runners, with the horses ahead of her being very smart.
Dropping back into this grade and having that better experience could make her tough to beat, with the soft ground set to suit.
