Nice e/w call from Gary. Original quote: "A race that's been kind to us in the past - we've won it three times and one more win would the record of 4 wins of Ryan Price in the 60's, but it's a race the Henderson and Twiston-Davies yards have done well in over the years too. Anyway, we've been delighted with Fifty Ball since he came over from France - winning his last two and is improving all the time. Hiked up 11lbs for the last win and goes without saying a much tougher race, but we still get in here with a light weight (10-5lbs) due to the rise in grade. My three previous winners all were 10-9 or less and unless you've got a Champion Hurdle horse in this race, then I feel this sort of weight is best for this race. The horse is well too and been freshened up with a few months off - should go well, with a live E/W chance, while any further rain would help his chance."
