In depth


Nicky Henderson has seven runners entered on today’s card. Bond's Lover is the first and worth a market check making her debut under Rules given she’s a half-sister to a Flat and hurdles winner. Urban Artist can probably be forgiven her early departure at Wincanton given she’d won a Listed bumper previously at Cheltenham. Crossgalesfamegame won easily at Market Rasen in November but was almost 13 lengths behind AIMEE DE SIVOLA in a handicap at Sandown next time. Nick Williams’ mare has been finding life tough in handicaps since winning her maiden at Warwick so it’s no surprise to see her reverting to novice company. Getaway Totherock was very impressive at Ludlow and any improvement on that would make her a big danger so she’s preferred to Fontwell winner Martha Brae.
