In depth

Verdict

Connections have been fairly bold in their previous targets for LEADING THEATRE though she’ll need to brush up upon her jumping having rather let herself down at Worcester on a first start over hurdles. Nibras Gold won a couple of races over staying trips on the Flat and this will be a first outing for David Pipe. Olly's Folly was easy to back at Newton Abbot and would be disappointing if something couldn’t improve past him but Valamix may just need a little more time before we see the best of him.
