The 2m7f handicap hurdle has drawn a big field of 15 and plenty can be fancied, but Philip Hobbs’ CONTENTED is the one I like most for several reasons. For one, the five-year-old is far less exposed than some of these and is surely capable of better than he’s shown so far. That’s still pretty decent as he was a ready winner at Sedgefield in December, having chased home a decent sort at Taunton previously, and we can forgive him his subsequent well beaten effort when favourite at Wincanton on bottomless ground.

Now 3lb lower in the weights, he should be cherry ripe following his comeback run over a half mile shorter at Ayr 17 days ago when giving the impression he was ready for a step up to this sort of trip. Furthermore, his stable is in even better form now, with Hobbs’ 32 runners in the last fortnight yielding nine winners (32%) and he is reaching for first-time blinkers to help sharpen the gelding up. With the champion jockey up top, the selection really has plenty going for him and not least his each-way price.
