Three to Sandown and one to Hereford...
1.50 - Jabulani won a decent novice hurdle at Lingfield in November, but has finished down the field in two handicaps since. Down 3lbs to 124 today, he’s in good form and will have a better chance than the odds on offer this morning over a trip that he seems to enjoy. Won on this ground, Jamie Bargary rides and a good run expected.
2.25 - Mr Antolini won at Leicester two outings ago from a mark of119 over 2 miles then went well to take second at Huntingdon four weeks ago. He’s now up to 130 but is making the right sort of progress in keeping with his mark. Another in good form, he has a decent each way chance and can go well. Jamie rides.
4.45 - Crievehill has a decent set of form figures since going chasing and seems to have a bit more to come. Beaten by the narrowest Of margins at Haydock three weeks ago, he goes over a similar trip and ground here and has a good chance of getting back in the winners enclosure. Sam Twiston-Davies aboard and a good run expected.
2.50 - Judge Er Parti makes his debut for us having joined from the Christian Williams yard, where he ran up a hat trick of runners up spots over hurdles following a bumper win at Bangor last April. He also makes his handicap bow on what looks a decent mark of 119. Hopefully more to come, he’s expected to go very well here. Tom Humphries rides and takes off 7lbs.
