Solid run from Oliver's horse. Original quote: "Sam looked above average on his debut over hurdles at Uttoxeter last month when beaten by a nice horse of Dan Skeletons. They pulled well clear of the third horse which is always a good sign. Sam is not flash in any way at home, he was a very ordinary work horse though he has improved of late and he is quite plain to look at. He does have a wonderful nature, laid back and pretty lazy, he is the sort of horse that is a joy to train because he just takes everything in his stride and nothing phases him. Nicky's horse to beat, but we should take nother step forward here and should run a solid race. Each-way.
