Polly Gundry has made a solid start to life in the training ranks and TEENAGE KICKS is taken to make it three wins for the yard. Travelling well when falling at Newton Abbot, the gelding made amends when landing a comfortable success at Plumpton. The handicapper reacted by putting him up 11lb for that success, presumably why the trainer has chosen to revert to the novice hurdle route here. Kasban is a massive threat though, having served up a series of solid performances after scoring at Kempton in March, notably when a very good second last time to a progressive sort at Worcester. Inner Steel and winning pointer Chicharito are next best.
