Huntingdon’s NAP: SAGE ADVICE | 1:30pm Michaelmas Handicap Hurdle | Dom’s Pick
Dr. Richard Newland’s charge scored a decent sixth in the Boodles at Cheltenham back in March and has enjoyed subsequent outings on the flat since, including late last month.
He should strip fitter for that now heading back over timber and he’s 8lb better off with former Warwick rival Cabot Cliffs, who beat him in the Midlands back in February.
Ajero contested in Grade 1 company last campaign and despite disappointing on his Ascot reappearance, he’s been given a bit of leeway by the handicapper and should find this contest a bit easier.

An intriguing duel between the top two at the head of the market but Ian Williams’ representative was beaten by a subsequent winner when taking a step forward at Ludlow last month.
That was only his second start over hurdles and with that form in the book, he could be the value selection ahead of Olly Murphy’s Salley Gardens.
In a fairly underwhelming looking contest, Rebel Royal looks the each-way selection under Daryl Jacob.
