MARRADONG BROOK: drifted to 5-1 from 9-4 on first run of the season at Hereford. Hurdled well to be third to Pharaoh Blue. Further success over long distances looks assured. (T Forster).

RIVER BOUNTY: ran well on seasonal debut at Ascot, challenging eventual winner Latent Talent, who was well handicapped, until fading before the final fence. Should not be long in regaining winning form. (J Upson).
