Worcester’s NAP: HAUL AWAY | 6:05pm MansionBet Watch And Bet Handicap Hurdle | Dom’s Pick
Despite a poor effort over fences here last time, Nicky Henderson’s charge is still a duel-course winner at Worcester in 2021 and perhaps a return to the smaller obstacles can bring the best back out of him.
He beat a subsequent winner when landing the honours over timber here in June and maybe the longer-than-usual lay-off was the reason behind his flat performance when switched to chasing last month.
James Bowen returns to the saddle and despite the hefty weight, his value over market principal Goa Lil just swings the choice in his favour.NB: DYLAN'S SEA SONG | 7:35pm MansionBet Beaten By A Head Mares' Handicap Hurdle
Blue Sans will no doubt attract support after her close second at this track recently but we're siding with the Dylan Thomas seven-year-old who arrives here off the back of a success at Stratford.
The step-up in trip appears to really have worked in her favour and given the manner of her Warwickshire win last time out, a 7lb rise may not stop her.
A career-best is needed, but she's going the right way.
