Chti Balko can lead the way in Morebattle Hurdle

2.25 Kelso  CHTI BALKO   4pts @ 5/1

Kelso stage their second biggest meeting of the season behind the Premier Hurdle day with the staging of the 30th anniversary of their famous Morebattle Hurdle. This hurdle track is not for all types being just over a mile round & suits the more handy type. I think Chti Balko may well get his own way out in front here & this class 2 hurdle will suit Donald McCain’s 6yo better than when trying to give between 10lb – 31lb in a handicap over CD a month ago. Not that he was disgraced in finishing a 5l fifth & that followed a comfortable 7l success at Haydock’s Christmas meeting. If there is one that takes on the selection for the lead, it will more than likely be the 5yo mare of Richard Hobsons,  Dame Rose. After being put in her place in Newbury’s Challow Hurdle, she returned to her own sex with a creditable fourth in the Yorkshire Rose Mares Hurdle at Doncaster, a grade 2 event. Providing she doesn’t take the selection on for the lead, she would be the danger. Last year’s winner Cyrius Darius would be popular for Malcolm Jefferson’s daughter Ruth, but has a 6lb penalty this time around & that may just cost him. This will surely be too sharp for the Nicky Richards’ novice Better Getalong, while Katgary hasn’t won since June 2016.
