Verdict

Only two of these have run over hurdles before and neither has shown much. ALEXANDERTHEGREAT won twice over 1m4f on the Flat when with William Haggas. Now with John Quinn, he should take this is handling the switch to jumping. Amy Murphy’s filly Pepper Street won over 1m6f at Ffos Las in August so stamina won;t be an issue but Fabianski never built on a winning start at Wolverhampton in February and has changed stables again recently. Sweet Marmalade was third at Ayr on her only start on the Flat but that was back in June for a different trainer.
