Just four runners will go to post for Market Rasen’s “national hunt” novices’ hurdle over 2m4f and the favourite, Onefitzall, is worth taking on at the forecast 5/4.

Having impressed in winning his first two starts at Uttoxeter (a bumper and a hurdle), he was sent off at odds-on to land the hat-trick at Leicester last time, only to let his supporters down by finishing a one-paced third. That was back in November and while the break may have done him some good, he equally might just need this run.

Besides he’s up against a highly promising sort in Malcolm Jefferson’s SHARPASAKNIFE, who was a ready winner of a similar race at Wetherby on his racecourse debut last month. The six-year-old, who is out of a mare who has produced three useful hurdlers, led approaching three out and came away from a previous winner to win by 11 lengths. His trainer sees him as a future chaser but reckons he’s big enough to carry a penalty and win more hurdles. This looks an excellent opportunity for him to follow up.
