Imperial Acolyte Warwick Racecourse
One today with Imperial Acolyte going to Warwick Racecourse for the 4.15, a 2m handicap hurdle, partnered by Sam Twiston-Davies.
A winner over this trip on his hurdles debut at Wetherby back in November ‘18, he had a couple more outings without success followed by a wind op. Had another outing followed by another wind op, then a good break before an encouraging return with a 4th place at Ludlow over 2m 5f off a handicap mark of 115 in November, followed by a down the field outing at Lingfield early December dropped a couple of furlongs from 112.
Down a further 3lbs here and back to 2m will hopefully see him return to being competitive and he looks to have a good each way chance.
An improved run expected.
