Great weekend for Nicholls novices
It’s a big weekend for Paul Nicholls because, in addition to leading last season’s best juvenile hurdler, Monmiral, in the Fighting Fifth, he sends two of his top novice prospects to hurdles. Stage Star is in action at Newbury on Friday, while Mr Glass, who demarcated the hurdles on the same card at Chepstow, offer to extend unbeaten streak in ‘French Furze’ Novices’ Hurdle at Newcastle on Saturday.

Mr. Glass is from a half-sister of high-class hurdler Yanworth, and he looks like a towering guy, so he has the tools to make a big impact on obstacles. The Timeform Large P attached to his note suggests he still has a lot to offer.
