Top effort behind an improving sort - but made him work. Original quote: "Landsman - Look to have the Hobbs horse to beat - and that might be hard as he won well the other week. But we come here in good order too after a nice win at Musselburgh in a maiden hurdle. Into a handicap hurdle for the first time today but a fair mark. Stays further than this, but likes to race up with the pace so we'll make full use of that. More needed in this better race, but we come here in tip-top form so a good showing expected and hopefully we can make the jolly work for it."
