Lanzarote Hurdle Preview

The main betting heat on this card sees Nicky Henderson, successful with William Henry in 2018, sending out a two-pronged challenge with THEINVAL returning to hurdles as a second string to BURROWS EDGE who also ran over fences on his latest outing.

While Theinval has plenty to prove at present, Burrows Edge has a great deal going for him, having run well in defeat at this course last season. The 7yo jumped accurately in the main in a novices’ handicap chase at Ludlow before Christmas, only to crumple on landing when disputing the lead four from home.

Olly Murphy’s NOTRE PARI has been lively in the ante post book and that came as no surprise judging from the way he put behind him a couple of defeats when favourite by scoring decisively over this trip at Aintree. It was his first outing in a handicap and an 8lb rise still leaves him an unexposed player that can earn, with his good form at a Market Rasen a testament to his ability to operate on a right- handed track.

From a consistency viewpoint LARKBARROW LAD is hard to leave out of any exotics, having yet to finish out of the first two in his career over hurdles. The slight issue is that his last two outings were over brush hurdles at Worcester, a track now relegated to hosting summer jumping only, and his last appearance was back in October.

Dan Skelton’s NORTHOFTHEWALL is a novice bidding to meet the challenge of a step up in class but should not be discarded after impressively opening her account for the season by a wide margin in a Hereford maiden hurdle.

BURROWS PARK also brings Hereford form to the table having landed a Class 2 handicap there in December. The 8yo made all on that occasion and should again try to stamp his authority from on the pace.

One that could get into the shake-up at double figure odds is VIVE LE ROI whose third in a big field behind Champers On Ice at Newbury reads very appealingly.
