French Import Looks Ready To Set Up A Sequence

26th April 2019, 09:22 by Gerard Lees

Improving Five-Year-Old Ready To Strike Again

Punters will be consulting weather reports as much as the form book today, with Storm Hannah bringing gales, and heavy local rain about. Bangor and Chepstow may be susceptible to these but a horse that is improving and able to handle any change in the going if it gets wet is JATILUWIH in the Sun Trade Windows Novices' Hurdle at the latter course. He raced in France for two trainers, winning on very soft ground at Pau, before being gelded and transferred to Philip Hobbs' Somerset yard. Making his UK debut last month in a little two miles and five furlongs novice event at Ludlow, he couldn't have done it better, coming home three lengths in front of Falco Blitz, who, at the time looked a Henderson hotpot and who has been runner-up since. The ground was good to soft. The impression of Jatiluwih is of a forward-looking type who will take a decent handicap down the line. Top rated on BTO, he can win today's event on the way, with ALRIGHTJACK giving him the most problems; and we need not worry about the weather and any change in going.
