A busy afternoon of six rides with Rock N Rolla and Boogie Life keeping me in the groove.
Judge Earle was a good hurdles winner for me in early July and ran well finishing second at Hexham on his latest outing in Mid September. He tackles fences for the first time and has something to find on hurdles form with sole rival Rocky’s Treasure, a former Points winner, also making chase debut.
Rockys Treasure may pose the main threat on chase debut.
Man Look, a winner of three hurdles the last in October 17, showed a return to form when I was on board last time at Sedgefield in late August finishing second to Apterix, beaten a length and a half. A repetition of that run today should give him a good chance with most to fear from Strong Team and Chookie Royale. He stays well and I am looking forward to the ride.
The main rivals are Strong Team and Chookie Royale.
a winner of three flat races, ran well for me on hurdling debut at Perth last month finishing second to Global Jackpot, who has won again. He should show the benefit of that experience and be right in contention today. The main rival is Noah And The Ark a good winner at Stratford last time but carrying a penalty.

Blunder Buss got off the mark over hurdles at the fifth attempt when I was in the saddle at Musselburgh in March. He is a genuine consistent type and returns after a good break, In the four runner field. My horse will like the ground and the trip and will hopefully shade it.
The chief opponent is Aye Right, successful over course and distance last month.
4.25 Nuts Well was a winner for me at Carlisle last November. He returns in this five runner contest against seasoned handicappers. My horse receives weight and that may compensate somewhat for his lack of experience..
Top weight Simply Ned, twice a winner of the race and hat trick seeking Vosnee Romanee will provide stiff opposition.
Boogie Life, a bumper winner is still a maiden over hurdles after nine attempts. She ran reasonably well at Hexham in Mid September finishing fifth. The fourth in that contest ran second at the track on Friday. My horse will enjoy the two and a half mile trip and is well handicapped. She has an e.w chance.
In an open looking contest Jack Lamb and Geen Zone are the main dangers.
