Northern - Sedgefield 1.20

Sedgefield 1.20 Handicap Hurdle - Class 5 - Div 1 - 2 miles 4 furlongs - 11 run - Soft
 
CAILIN DEARG won for us here the last time and is hard to dismiss or ignore in current form and I will have a small win saver on it here but a few came out of that most recent race and could be a fair bit more competitive today.
 
Burdigala off a falling handicap mark for Micky Hammond who has banged in a 25/1 winner for us last weekend and a similar win for a Tracker horse the week before, and who had a 66/1 winner yesterday is one to keep an eye on both today and on its next few runs. AMMA LORD for the very much in form Rebecca Menzies yard makes an interesting drop in trip. There have been mixed messages  for this one trip wise, finishing strongly over shorter but then weakening badly over further, it's one that looks sure to click very soon and a real danger here. Joie De Vivre too whose 2 best recent runs have been over Course and Distance and who has also won at Ayr is back to a mark below 100 and a big danger on those factors.
 
LOSTNFOUND a Course and Distance winner off 95 ran on noticeably well on seasonal debut here last time, gets the assistance of Brian Hughes and is very interesting off a mark of 89. CASH AGAIN too is another course and Distance winner off a mark of 98 and has won at Hexham off a mark of 102, seems to be returning to that sort of form again and another big danger off a mark of 97.
 
I can't get away from the fact CAILIN DEARG may have a bit more to tap, and it's hard to split AMMA LORD, Joie De Vivre, LOSTNFOUND and CASH AGAIN.
 
So I'll go with the proven Course form of LOSTNFOUND and CASH AGAIN and keep a very close eye on the next couple of runs on Amma Lord and hope it doesn't click quite yet!
