As easy As ABC For Novice Hurdler

Improving Six-Year-Old Ready To Strike At Leicester

After her win in a point-to-point in Ireland in February last year, EARLY LEARNER was clearly thought highly of as after being transfewrred to Kim Bailey's Gloucestershire stable was entered in a Class 1 bumper at Market Rasen and went off at 9/1. She was a little disappointing in coming home 10th of 11 but it was a top event in its bracket, was run on heavy ground and the mare 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 superior form on offer in this event with ACCORDINGTOGINO appearing next best with the Skeltons running at 27% over hurdles at the course. 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 have learned from her last outing, has plenty in her favour, and her 5/2 looks attractive.
