MOSAMBO (IRE) got off the mark at Ffos Las on Friday in the 3m Mares Handicap Hurdle. She has been progressing nicely for her owners Somerset Racing since stepping up in trip. She travelled strongly under Ciaran Gethings and was always doing enough after being left in front two from home. She’s up 4lb for the win but looks more than capable of following up in a similar contest.

VALSEUR DU GRANVAL (FR) made it back-to-back wins for Dave Thompson & The Magic 10 at Huntingdon on Monday in the 2m Handicap Chase. He was carrying a 7lb penalty for his win at Ludlow a week earlier but he travelled smoothly into a challenging position and managed to hold on to the lead in a thrilling finish! He jumped out of his paddock the following morning and appears to be in fantastic form so it’s likely he will have one more run before enjoying retirement.
