Commodore Barry was a winner for us over Christmas, and can make it five from six in the Grade Two Albert Bartlett River Don Novices' Hurdle, on our first visit to Doncaster this afternoon.
His win here over the Festival period certainly caught the eye, after badly hanging left he rallied late and like all great Champions, was able to win ugly.
Prior to that there were a couple of easy successes at Southwell, and looks a promising youngster for Kim Bailey going forward.
Golden opportunity to take it to the next level today and his trainer Kim Bailey has a great record at this track running at a 40 percent win rate over the last 12 months. With this David Bass is in the saddle and when teaming up with the trainer they have a 17.5 percent strike rate.
