JENNY PITMAN has lost more of her yard's talent to other yards. Wonder Man, a top hurdler and chasing prospect, is one of four horses to have been switched to David Nicholson's stable.

Wonder Man was joined by useful novice hurdlers Baydon Star and Mighty Mogul as well as Idleigh's Tudor, a half-brother to Mrs Pitman's 1984 Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Burrough Hill Lad. All four are owned by Bill and Shirley Robins, who had 16 horses at Weathercock House last season.

At the start of this year, however, the Robins's began moving them elsewhere. Stan Mellor, Andy Turnell and Brooke Sanders were earlier beneficiaries.

Nicholson was second only to Martin Pipe in the prize money winning table last season.
