RECENT LAMBOURN WINNERS
Martha BraeWarren Greatrex
Had a nice run round last time and will have learnt plenty from that. With that experience under her belt there is every chance she will be in the frame today, as she improved hugely between her first and second bumper runs!
Pistol WhippedNicky Henderson
Pistol Whipped was impressive when he won his maiden hurdle and much the same applies to him but unfortunately they have to run in the same race. I hope he will go well.
He ran very disappointingly last time and the visors didn’t give much help so its back to the drawing board. I’m not really sure what he’s going to do today.
