I’M praying for MORNING VICAR (nap) in Hereford’s 2.15.
He had some good bumper form and there was a lot to like about his hurdles debut when third behind top prospect Kateson at Newbury.
This is nowhere near as deep.
ECEPARTI (1.10 Hereford, nb) has been hinting at ability in novices’ hurdles.
I’m expecting him to take a big jump forward now he steps into a handicap for in-form trainer Venetia Williams.
ILHABELA FACT (7.15 Kempton, treble) didn’t stay 2m last time out but the form of his earlier course-and-distance success has worked out well. He’s still nicely treated.
