Hutchinson Hurdler Set To Double Up At Market Rasen
Last-Time-Out Winner Looks The King In Novice
An improving novice hurdler can be a source of income until he steps up in class and we have one that fits the criteria today. HARAMBE contests the starsports.bet "National Hunt" Novices' Hurdle over the unusual distance of two miles two and a half furlongs and takes a win from a Class 4 at Kempton into the event. Trained by Alan King, he won well there by three lengths from Ferrobin, in turn a winner of his last event after places in bumpers and novices. Nicky Henderson's Heatstroke was back in third, beaten 26 lengths and he was also a winner on his previous outing. That result fulfilled the promise of his win debut and Aintree third and was his second outing going right-handed, as today, plus he has winning pilot Wayne Hutchinson on board. GARRETTSTOWN is top on regular BTO ratings, ahead of NEW QUAY and Harambe and would look a real challenger if he hadn't been pulled up last time out. That was preceded by a win and a couple of seconds and his trainer and jockey (Murphy/Gregory) are nearly 30% at Market Rasen. New Quay goes for the in-form Skeltons but has become disappointing and Harambe looks the call.
