HIDDEN DEPTHS looks good under a 7lb penalty for a cosy score at Hereford 10 days ago as he takes on five rivals for the Royal Ascot Racing Club Novices’ Handicap Hurdle (3.50) at the Queen’s racecourse today.
The Neil Mulholland trainee came good over timber at his 10th attempt when beating Kendelu by a nose at Hereford on his penultimate outing.
And Hidden Depths returned to the same track for a three-and-a-half-length margin over Spiritus Mundi last time out.
The British Horseracing Authority handicapper has reacted with a 9lb rise in the weights as a result of that win so, with an additional 7lb on his back, Sam Twiston-Davies’ mount is 2lb in credit on official figures.
At Catterick Bridge, REVE can give the bookies’ sleepless nights despite having to shoulder top weight in the Injured Jockeys’ Fund Handicap Chase (3.05).
Martin Keighley’s seven-year-old was in the process of running well when coming down at the final fence at Stratford at the start of October.
But Reve made handsome amends with a two-length margin over Cape Robin at Ludlow a month later and a 5lb rise in the weights may not be enough to stop Sean Bowen’s partner from going in again.
