Thanks Sondrio. Hope it runs well for you. I used to concentrate on Novice hurdles but they are no longer straight forward until around January till the end of the season. The reasons are – the All Weather – French Breds/ Irish point to Pointers. Trainers like Nicholls, Henderson etc buy horses from there, and there is little worthwhile hurdle form to work with and the head of the market is taken by unexposed expensive purchases. The last bastion now until the New Year are juvenile hurdles, but there are not enough of them. Once we get to January it is more based on Hurdle form and I did used to use speed figures which can work well. I liked to find horses at bigger prices to finish in the places.
