Worcester’s NAP: PERCY’S WORD | 5:00pm Cazoo Handicap Hurdle | Dom’s Pick
After back-to-back successes at Stratford, Dan Skelton’s charge returns to handicap company, with the drop back to two miles presenting no problems in Warwickshire last time out.
He’s been a largely consistent sort since returning from his near-two-year lay-off and a repeat of his victory on his most recent start should surely see him go close.
Market principal Ragamuffin gets lumps of weight off the selection and is likely to serve it up to him under Sam Twiston-Davies.

Dr. Richard Newland’s gelding has some strong form to boot on his return to his local track, where he finished a fine second off a 2lb higher mark in July.
There’s been some substance to that form since and despite a heavy amount of weight in the saddle, he should strip better for the reduction in trip after being overextended at Newton Abbot last month.
Fergal O’Brien’s recent course-and-distance hero Blue Sans has done little wrong in his career to date and ranks chief threat.
