Today’s teasers…

“Ran well first time and hopefully will have come on for the experience and should see a competitive run this time.”

Warren Greatrex, Monthyne

“Carntop was a very useful horse on the flat and was second in the Lingfield Derby Trial. He has taken well to jumping at home and will make up into a decent hurdler. We’re throwing him into the deepend here in a Grade 2 on hurdling debut and I’ll be delighted should he finish in the top six.”

Jamie Snowden, Carntop

“Coming back from a lay-off and is in good form, he may just need the run though.”

Jo Hughes, Caledonia Lad

“First run for us, he might have only won a claimer but I believe that was quite a stronger claimer. This is a sighter to see where we are, but it is not impossible he will be good enough.”

Jamie Osborne, Carouse

Lambourn’s recent successes

Kalahari Queen (100/30)

3.40 Exeter | February 23

“Kalahari Queen won her novice hurdle well and was second under a penalty the last day when she found Catterick a bit sharp. Trip and track should suit today and as long as it’s not dried out too much, she should have a decent chance here on handicap debut.”

Jamie Snowden

Indian Hawk (7/4F)

1.50 Warwick | February 23

Nicky Henderson

Arlecchino’s Leap (8/1)

9.00 Chelmsford City | February 22

“He could run well today and he’s got a good lad onboard. I’m hopeful of a nice run.”
