RIVER LOSSIE: won only a moderate novice hurdle race at Fontwell last Monday but his winning margin was a comfortable six lengths. That was this four-year-old's debut over the sticks and his speed over the obstacles should ensure success against higher class opposition. (C Egerton)

TARKOVSKY: Beaten less than four lengths when second to Kabayil in a two-mile hurdle on good ground at Ludlow on Friday - a fine performance for a stayer who needs around three miles, in testing conditions, to show his best. That was this eight-year-old's seasonal debut and his first run for a new stable. Should be followed when able to bring his stamina into play. (R J Price)
