Patiently ridden by Adam Wedge, The Vollan continued his good run of form by cruising into the lead round the home turn and winning comfortably.
THE VOLLAN got badly hampered when a clear second off this mark at Hexham eight days earlier but avoided trouble on this occasion to repeat his C&D win from earlier in the month with ease. He's been competitive off higher marks over hurdles so remains with some scope over fences, with his stable in cracking form.
Making all the running under Adam Wedge, Tardree won his first race over Hurdles as an Odds On shot should, very comfortably.
TARDREE, not beaten far into second on his last two starts, was handed a simple task when the overnight odds-on market leader was taken out during the morning, and the 8yo got it done in the style the market suggested he would, securing a first win as a hurdler.
Reverting to Hurdles, Licklighter who is a useful Chaser, made all the running under Adam Wedge to win very comfortably.
LICKLIGHTER had a sound chance on his chase form, but his latest hurdles effort was disappointing. He was back to form here, and having dictated the gallop in modestly-run affair won without being asked a serious question. In this sort of form he can follow up with a penalty.
The Vollan travelled well under Adam Wedge to record his first win over bigger obstacles at the sixth time of asking.
THE VOLLAN, a three-time hurdle winner who had yet to win over fences in five previous attempts, was always travelling well within himself, with the visor refitted, and won despite a scare at the second-last. He'll remain well treated once reassessed
