Saint Thomas won five times on the Flat up to 1m4f and made Franciscan work harder than expected on his hurdling debut over course and distance last month. He will be winning soon judged on that effort but we're expecting a bit more of EDMAAJ this season and this looks a decent starting point. He was a little novicey in two runs last winter but showed promise and will have had plenty of schooling. Little Pop won a Ludlow bumper last December and is worth monitoring for market interest along with fellow hurdling debutants Apollo Eleven and Qasser.
