Lizzie Kelly gave AUBUSSON a superb ride here at the start of the month, gradually winding up the pace and galloping strongly up the hill to beat Regal Diamond by just over two lengths. He looks a very nice prospect and the 7lb claimer can enjoy the biggest success of her short career in this even though she can't use her allowance. Rathvinden was already struggling when falling at Warwick two weeks ago in a race in which Creepy finished tailed off. Both have a bit to prove now while Madness Light steps up in class. Red Sherlock has won both starts over hurdles and, though the form is nothing special, he is open to plenty of further improvement.
