The first race of the day at Cheltenham on Wednesday is the 2m4f Novices' Hurdle and Torn And Frayed for Nigel Twiston-Davies is a highly progressive horse that should go well again here;
The seven year old has got consistently better all the way through this season, heating the soft ground at the start of the term, but since the better ground has come, has started to turn into a seriously nice prospect.
At Hereford in February the seven year old got off the mark for the first time this season beating a smart horse for trainer Andy Irvine, who has since gone on to win both of his next two races.
In March Torn And Frayed went to Kelso and bumper into one for Paul Nicholls with Flash Collonges being a class above, but he still stayed on for second going clear of the third.
The gelding got back to winning ways last time out at Fakenham on good ground when taking a Novices' Hurdle by an eased down 20 lengths.
This is much tougher, but getting his ground and the way he is progressing he is hard to oppose.
