Paul Mant 40 Years At Fontwell Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle (4) Class 4

  • Distance: 2m 3f 49y
  • Age: 4yo
  • Runners: 7
  • Prize: £7,200

Without a win since August 2018 but has returned to form the last twice, latterly finding just one too good at Huntingdon (20.7f, good). Remains on an attractive mark and this 12-y-o merits respect.

Shaped pretty well when third over this C&D on debut for new yard in December. Excuses at Huntingdon next time and while a sizeable step forward is needed, she may do better now handicapping.
