Bold Endeavour looks to be an exciting prospect after this comfortable Wetherby win, though we cannot see a lot thanks to the fog !
Add 192yds. There was restricted visibility due to fog for this novice hurdle which featured three previous winners. The pace was fair and the form should work out.
BOLD ENDEAVOUR made it 4-4 with a career-best performance. Already the winner of a point, a bumper and a maiden hurdle he was facing his stiffest test but passed it with flying colours. Although he wears a hood he raced a bit lazily but powered clear up the straight and looks a useful prospect with a step up to 3m likely to suit him well
Just two weeks after winning easily at Fontwell, Hasankey made the long trip to Ayr worthwhile with another easy victory under a fine ride from Lewis Dobb.
HASANKEY is a real mud lover and he followed up Boxing Day's Fontwell romp with the minimum off fuss off this 7lb higher mark. The only horse still able to raise a gallop at the finish when scoring by 48l in bottomless ground last time, he's clearly thriving at present and came right out of his rider's hands jumping the last. It'll take a good one to beat him in his current mood
Rafferty bounced back to form at Southwell under a patient ride from Adam Wedge and in a first time tongue tie, for a comfortable success.
RAFFERTY, who had a first-time tongue-tie added to a hood, had been given a bit of time after Huntingdon and was back on the up to make it 2-3 for his new yard, ridden with a touch more restraint on this occasion and not hard pressed to come clear. He's sure to remain of interest.
Socialist Agenda winning for the first time over hurdles at Catterick in fairly comfortable fashion under Sean Quinlan. A good start to 2022 for the yard !
SOCIALIST AGENDA, who was three from three in good ground bumpers, got off the mark on his third start over hurdles. He'd shaped well on his two previous runs, didn't need to improve to take and would have done it more convincingly if he hadn't got in too tight at the last. This was pretty uncompetitive but he's still relatively unexposed and open to further improvement.
