She is clearly on the upgrade and has her first foray into handicap company back at Southwell today. She has to give at least a stone to three rivals but as long as the ground doesn’t turn too soft she should be up to the task.
STONEY MOUNTAIN (nb) is a fine prospect for Henry Daly and was a bit unlucky not to win at Ascot last time when he hung badly to his left near the finish. He has been found a good opportunity to get back on the winning trail at Southwell.
He will be more streetwise after his hurdling debut at Market Rasen when he was runner-up and can see off Ain’t My Fault.
