It was great to get off the mark at Cheltenham last weekend and THOMAS CAMPBELL was very impressive in winning his hurdles debut and KHEZERABAD ran very well too but I wouldn’t get that carried away with the race as I’m not sure how good it was. I’m sure the Handicapper will probably disagree with me and put them both up just for the sake of it but there’s nothing I can do about that!
Eight runners across Newmarket and Chelmsford will be flying the Hannon flag this Saturday and with the ground still on the good side it makes sense to get as many out as possible as usually the going is pretty soft at this time of year and we don’t have so many runners so we’re making the most of it!
