The Nicky Richards-trained Isaacstown Lad has climbed the ratings after a couple of handicap hurdle successes in the spring, including a Class 4 here in easy fashion, going up a whopping 22lb in total. However, the lightly-raced eight-year-old may be improving fast to cope and encouragement for that can be gleaned from a recent Stable Tour, with Richards saying it was “still worth keeping on the right side of him” and, indeed, making him his ‘trainer’s pick’, which is some compliment when you consider the talent he has at his disposal. The selection is up in grade this afternoon and therefore taking on better horses, but none look as progressive as him and the forecast “good to soft” ground is perfect as he doesn’t want it too testing.
