Southwell 30th July
Double Court goes to Southwell for the 4.45, a 2m 4+f handicap hurdle, Sam Twiston-Davies rides. A versatile performer over both fences and hurdles, he returns to the smaller obstacles here 5lbs worse off than when successful over course and distance 11 months ago, the last time he went hurdling. He’s on a 5lb higher chase mark of 110 and this looks a good place to start this term. Trip and ground look ideal, he’s in good heart and has a good each way chance despite giving weight to all his rivals.
