RECENT LAMBOURN WINNERS

2:30 Newbury, 26th November

First Street

Nicky Henderson

This race has been the plan since year dot and I’m pleased to say everything has gone according to plan so far. He jumps well, gallops well and is a very talented horse. He does have to carry top weight which won’t make things easy but this race is made for him.

PRICE 3/1J
2:10 Newcastle, 26th November

Constitution Hill

Nicky Henderson

As has been very well publicised, this is definitely plan B after Ascot last week and it’s not ideal running him and Epatante in the same race, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles and it still fits in nicely with the Christmas Hurdle on Boxing Day. He’s fit, well, looks a million dollars and who knows what the ground will be doing in a day’s time let along two weeks if we were going to consider the Unibet International Hurdle at Cheltenham, so he’s coming here and I couldn’t be happier with his condition.

PRICE 1/4F
1:12 Doncaster, 26th November

Touchy Feely

Nicky Henderson

She was placed in all her bumpers and I think two and a half miles on decent ground should suit her well.

PRICE 11/8F
12:15 Newbury, 26th November

Luccia

Nicky Henderson

She was a high class mare in bumpers last season. We are being ambitious starting in a Listed race but she has been going nicely.
