Only a novice over hurdles until the end of the month, Hobbs is keen to get another win in to Captain Chris (3:35) before he goes chasing and he can land the Grade 2 Persian War, a race he won in 2001 and 2002 with One Knight and Supreme Prince. Early Price 11/8 totesport
Duke Of Lucca (4:10) was a top-class novice himself last term and, despite sharing top-weight, he can defy a mark of 148 to take the Silver Trophy. Early price 5/1
The five-year-old looks to have a very big future and he has conditions in his favour for his seasonal return.
