Class Conti (Rachael Blackmore), Rathvinden (Paul) and Total Recall (Danny) all go back over hurdles for their first runs of the season in the 3 mile conditions hurdle. The trip and ground will suit all three and they are running here as the race conditions are in their favour. Class Conti’s recent run in a charity race gives him a slight fitness edge but Paul has picked Rathvinden and he may prove best of the trio.
Saint Roi (Patrick) has his first run for us in the 2m 3f QR maiden hurdle. He was third in a listed hurdle over a similar trip on soft ground in France and has been pleasing us at home. He should be capable of getting off the mark here today.
