The Steward – 5:15 Cartmel (11/1 – bet365)
Dropped down in class following a string of struggling performances, The Steward could strike in a 2m1f Handicap Hurdle at Cartmel.
Hailing from James Moffatt’s yard, the gelding’s sole win over hurdles came at this course back in 2019.
The 10-year-old bolted clear of his rivals on that occasion, clearing away to win by eight lengths at the large odds of 33/1.
The quicker ground shouldn’t be an issue and the 5lb claimer booked could well benefit him in this level of company.
At the price of 11/1, The Steward could push into the frame here.
