Verdict

Heavey made a winning debut over timber and progression is expected as he steps up in trip here. He does have to concede weight to a couple of James Moffatt runners, however, and APTLY PUT is taken to prove best of the pair and notch a first hurdling success despite jockey bookings. The selection has acceptable form in the book for Richard Spencer and shaped well here on a first start for his new yard when a good third to Justatenner. Now reverting from handicaps to novice hurdling, he should go close. Mega Double is solid and reliable but, like Oborne Lady, ran here on Saturday.
