SIR FREDLOT ran flat on his latest start but that came only 10 days after going close on his hurdling bow at Sandown when runner-up to Feb Thirtyfirst. He should be fully recovered now and A P McCoy stays loyal. Stablemate Lady Romanza finished last on her first attempt at hurdling and My Boy Ginger looks a bigger threat as he's rated higher on the Flat than the other hurdling newcomer Maccabees.
