Verdict

BOURNE won three times on the Flat and looked a really nice prospect when beating subsequent dual winner Into Wain at Catterick on his hurdling debut. He disappointed at Musselburgh next time but can get back to winning ways. Hada Men ran quite well on his hurdling bow at Wetherby and has completed a hat-trick on the all-weather since. He's obviously in great heart and must be considered along with Spiekeroog, who has improved since well beaten by Bourne at Catterick, and Mica Mika, a very consistent performer on the level who won a juvenile event at Wetherby.
