TODAY’S HIGHLIGHTED RUNNER
“Lil Guff gave everyone a lot of fun as a three year old, winning twice to andd to her two wins ant two. She also ran with credit at some of the biggest meetings. That caught up with her towards the end of the season and she’s had a lovely break and returned in good form. She’s done enough work to be ready to run but we’d expect improvement for the race.”Daniel & Claire Kübler

RECENT LAMBOURN WINNERS
Brentford HopeHarry Derham
He was obviously a very talented flat horse and has had a good level of form over hurdles so far, finishing 2nd behind three nice horses probably most notably when 2nd behind Rubaud at Taunton, a horse of Paul Nicholls who’s gone on to win a Grade Two. A reproduction of that form should be good enough here. He’s a lovely horse, very nice natured. He’s done lots of work with me since he’s arrived and I’m hopeful of a good show.
On The Blind SideNicky Henderson
He has been a great servant over the years but they might be catching up on him.
Russian RulerNicky Henderson
I am not sure about the ground but loves to bowl along.
The CarpenterNicky Henderson
The Carpenter won well on his debut at Exeter but this ground will be very, very different.
