Cockney Sparrow: Doncaster next on the agenda
Cockney Sparrow will revert to mares-only company for her next appearance, despite the form of her most recent start at Newcastle taking a boost.
John Quinn's representative moved from handicap level to Listed class when striking at Wetherby in November and continued her progress when finishing second to My Tent Or Yours in the Fighting Fifth at Newcastle.
The winner went on to beat The New One in the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton and is now towards the top of the betting for the Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in March.
"I'm sure My Tent Or Yours will have improved, but she certainly comes out of the race with credit," said Quinn.
"She will next run in a mares' race at Doncaster on January 25 (the Grade Two OLBG.com Mares' Hurdle)."
