This Saturday sees a lovely card from Sandown as the show piece meeting across the weekend and we have a strong each selection that is looking to make it back to back ante-post pick wins.

The feature race at the Esher track is the Grade Three Imperial Cup Handicap Hurdle and the horse that takes the eye is Natural History for Gary Moore.

The current 3/1 shot for the race looks to be an extremely nice price at this stage and will only get shorter before the off with non runners.

The six year old gelding is weighted to have a big say in the two mile event having been a smart horse on the flat and then this season been sent over hurdles and taken to them really well.

He made his hurdles debut in January at Plumpton over two miles and finished a good second on soft ground behind a nice type for David Pipe.

He then went to Wincanton and again had to settle for second behind Lucky One for Paul Nicholls who has since gone and mixed it in better company.

Natural History finally got off the mark last time out back at Plumpton over two miles, when getting his preferred good ground and going on to hose up by 15 lengths.

He is fairly well treated in the weights jumping into his first handicap event on Saturday and getting his quicker conditions can see him go close again.
