Tom has three rides today at Wetherby.

Promise in a point and bumpers; longer trip likely to assist now sent over hurdles.

Hey Brother is also scheduled to make his debut in the novice hurdle at Wetherby on Saturday. He was only beaten half a length on his debut in an Irish point-to-point last winter, being beaten by Rockwiththethetimes, who is also now with us.

Having shown plenty of promise in his first bumper over this course in March, Hey Brother built on that the following month when finishing fourth in another one at Huntingdon. He now steps up in trip for his first run over timber, and, weather permitting, we are looking forward to getting him started.

Consistent when last seen in 2021-22 but faces stiff task at these weights after a layoff.

Improvement needed on chase debut but his smart dam was a better chaser than hurdler.

Also at Wetherby on Saturday we have Ernest Gray having his first run over fences in the three-mile handicap chase. It took time to get Ernest Gray to settle last year, but he switched off much better when breaking the ice over hurdles at Doncaster in March.

He then ran poorly at Newbury but he was staying on well in third on his final run at Huntingdon, and Alan has always thought that he would make a chaser. He was a useful bumper, winning one at Warwick.
