Lanzarote Hurdle runner-up Featherbed Lane is set to step up in class at Haydock next month following his fine run in defeat.

Philip Hobbs' progressive stayer just failed to complete a hat-trick of victories when beaten a nose by Swincombe Flame, who was receiving 14lb, in the competitive handicap at Kempton earlier this month.

The seven-year-old's owner Terry Warner is now looking forward to seeing Featherbed Lane run in the Grade Two Betfred Goals Galore Hurdle Trial, formerly known as the Rendlesham, at Haydock on February 18.

"He's going to Haydock in a fortnight's time for the three-mile hurdle there," said Warner.

"Haydock's usually heavy, so we thought we'd better run him there."
