Apart from one hiccup at the third last, Kozier jumped well on his hurdling debut at Fontwell yesterday, finishing second to Sussex Ranger, and we are back down the figure-of-eight circuit today hoping to go one better.Azzerti, admirably consistent last year, makes his first appearance since finishing third at Cheltenham in April when going into handicap company, while ex Irish point-to-pointer Chosen Path, bought for £60,000 last spring is debuting for us in the novice hurdle.

Alan, just pleased that both are ready to roll, said:”The horses are running well, and I was also delighted to hear that Myracing.com have stepped into the realm of race sponsorship with their support of 10 race meetings (seven jumps and three flat) at Arena courses this coming season.

“I wish them every success with the venture and very much hope that it leads to wider spread support in years to come. Indeed, with Betfred due to conclude the majority of their sponsorship arrangements next year there is a big hole to fill and it is good to see the likes of Myracing.com stepping up.
