Just the three meetings this afternoon and the racing is decidedly moderate, but both selections have a touch of class about them.

The Paul Nicholls-trained ALL SET TO GO was a Group performer on the flat when trained in Ireland and was good enough to finish third in the Group 3 Ballysax Stakes, a recognised Derby Trial. That turned out to be his last run on the level and much was expected of him on his hurdles debut at Kempton last October, only for him to disappoint and finish fourth of the eight runners behind the winner Stars Of The Sea.

No immediate excuse came to light and he wasn’t seen again until the Craven meeting at Newmarket. A rare runner on the flat for Paul Nicholls, he was never sighted that day but it turned out the four-year-old had a breathing problem, which according to the champion trainer (November 9 Stable Tour) has now been sorted. Nicholls also confirmed him to be going nicely at home, saying he was ‘coming together nicely’, and looks to have found a good opportunity for the gelding to get his hurdles career going.

Bumper winner One More To Go looks a big threat on his first start for Dr Richard Newland, though he was most effective over two miles on the flat and may therefore want further than this over hurdles.
