There was a major upset in the opening At The Races Virgin 534 Novices’ Hurdle, as red-hot 30-100 favourite Supreme Present, a winner of her last four races, was headed before the second-last flight and could find nothing extra as the finish was fought out by hurdles debutants Collodi and My Direction.
The German-bred victor, Collodi (8/1), who had won over a mile at Windsor for Lambourn trainer Roger Curtis, has only been in the care of his current handler David Bridgwater for a week. He was always travelling well on the inside in the hands of Tom Scudamore, and could make into a useful recruit to the jumping game. (from the Western Morning News).
Another winner for the blog was Porter’s War (Nick Scholfield, 7/1) who just nabbed the idling Falcarragh by a head at the line.
