As easy As ABC For Novice Hurdler
Promising Type Ready To Get Her Head In Front With Conditions To Suit
After her win in a point-to-point in Ireland in February last year, EARLY LEARNER was clearly thought highly of as she was transferred to the UK and entered in a Class 1 bumper at Market Rasen under new trainer Kim Bailey, going off at 9/1. She was a little disappointing in coming home 10th of 11 but had the likes of subsequent dual winner Kimberley Point not too far ahead. She was then off the course for 11 months before racing here three weeks ago, coming in second to Laughing Luis, beaten under a length. That looks the best form on offer in this event with ACCORDINGTOGINO offering the next. Early Learner gets six nice positives including Bailey's recent three from 10 and the horse's clear propensity for improvement. MILANSTORM also has much going for him, including a Twiston-Davies trainer/jockey combination of 38% but David Bass' mount will probably have learned from her last outing and justify 2/1 favouritism.
