April Meeting successor Hooper bids for a remarkable fifth win in a row at Stratford on Tuesday evening as he bids for a hat-trick of wins at the Warwickshire track.
Our NAP of the day has won his two previous starts in the West Midlands for Nicky Henderson and returns bidding for a quintet of successes back-to-back, the last duo of which have arrived since forming a formidable partnership with 7lbs claimer, Ben Ffrench Davis.
The son of Rip Van Winkle kickstarted his run at Kempton under Nico de Boinville in a jumpers bumper, before taking advantage of a final-flight faller at Hereford for Aidan Coleman back over hurdles.
He then took the Cheltenham Pony Racing Authority Graduates Handicap Hurdle at Prestbury Park a month later, before maintaining his unbeaten Stratford run when upped in trip in May.
With no other Seven Barrows contenders heading to the home of Shakespeare, he is Henderson’s only runner on the card and looks to have been found another solid opening to pass the post first once again.
