Classic Colori was beaten less than a length by Chesterfield at Worcester but was no match for the easy winner who is trained by John Ferguson, responsible for MY DIRECTION. The four-year-old was only beaten a neck on his hurdling debut at Newton Abbot and looks a nice prospect. Man Of Plenty was a stayer on the Flat and jockey bookings suggest he's preferred to stablemate Boher Lad here.
