Sandown return for First Flow
Trainer Kim Bailey says First Flow will return to action next weekend at Sandown if conditions suit.
First Flow has been absent since being pulled up in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at last year's Cheltenham Festival.
Bailey is targeting the Imperial Cup Handicap Hurdle at Sandown on March 9, although the seven-year-old's involvement is dependent on suitable ground.
"He goes to the Imperial Cup if they get enough rain," said Bailey, as reported by Sky Sports. "I'm happy with him, it's just that we've been waiting for soft ground.
"We were going to go chasing with him, but we've given that up and are going to run over hurdles.
"Quite honestly is he good enough to win with that handicap, I don't know, but he is ready to run."
