Course Winner
6 10-13 V J Hughes Mr Matthew Barber (7) 7/18.00


Considering his lack of experience and the fact that he ran with the choke out for a long way, TAIKOO was far from disgraced on his hurdling debut over 3m1f at Doncaster. A useful stayer on the Flat on soft ground, today's slight drop in distance should suit Hughie Morrison's seven-year-old and he can get off the mark at the second time of asking. Former pointer Laflammedeglorie may be the danger as he was up against a decent prospect in Shutthefrontdoor in a bumper here on his debut under Rules and can only improve, though Simply Ben showed promise at Chepstow last time. Milarrow ran his best race so far when only beaten half-a-length at Towcester but Cock Of The Rock has proved expensive to follow and Sharlene's Quest returns from a lay-off.
