18/12/20 – 2nd 5/1 – Knocknamona – Micky Hammond – Uttoxeter

Knocknamona came back from the doldrums with a nice win over fences at Bangor, but not only did he go up 10lb on his chase rating but a similar figure hurdling, so we're pretty much forced to run today as his new marks kick in tomorrow. Normally you'd think that would mean a very obvious chance but Andy Crook's Donald Dux won a Newcastle hurdle last week even more easily and is 14lb lower today than he would be tomorrow so it won't be easy to beat him.
