No More Heroes to stake his claim
No More Heroes can enhance his reputation as a serious festival contender by winning the grade 1 novice chase at Fairyhouse today (2.40). With Outlander, Monksland and Free Expression among his rivals this will be a serious test of his chasing credentials.
At Carlisle (2.20) trainer Nick Alexander pushed the boat out for Lake View Lad and having impressed on his bumper debut at Hexham can see of Virnon on his hurdling debut.
Yesterday Wakanda reinforced his legend status with me with a bold front running victory in the Rehearsal chase. Only 6 there is more to come from this gutsy and consistent Sue Smith stable star.
Aloomomo was another impressive winner for the blog and won in a manner suggesting he could be aimed even higher.
Smad Place was an impressive winner of the Hennessy in attritional conditions that found some of his rivals out.
