5 11-0 N J Henderson B J Geraghty 5/42.25


The Henderson yard bids for a hat-trick of victories in this and Tradewinds will be fit enough to do himself justice on his first start since April. But the hurdling debutant may find IRVING too good today. A multiple winner on the Flat in Germany, the latter left a good impression when scoring easily at Taunton on his hurdling bow and can defy a penalty to follow-up. Fond Memory faded quickly on his first start over timber at Stratford but still makes more appeal than points winner A Hare Breath while Hung Parliament was pulled-up on his hurdling bow last December and not been seen at the track since.
