ANNIES PRAYER should profit for the opportunity to tackle two and a half miles for the first time in the Cazoo Handicap Hurdle (1.50) at Sedgefield.

The Jennie Candlish-trained five-year-old made the podium on his first two starts over hurdles, finishing third at Ayr and second at Bangor-On-Dee in May.

Those runs qualified my selection for a handicap mark of 97, and Annies Prayer made his debut in the sphere at Newcastle in December.

Sent off at 5-1 in a field of 14, Sean Quinlan’s mount came home in fourth, beaten just under five lengths, behind Killane.

Her bloodline suggests that Annies Prayer is well worth stepping up from two miles, and the handicapper has done his bit by dropping Sageburg’s son 3lb to a new perch of 94.

At Wolverhampton, top weight may not be enough to stop SHARE THE PROFITS in the concluding Coral Proud To Support British Racing Handicap (Div II) (8.00).

After failing to trouble the judge in two starts over six furlongs at Wolverhampton and one at Newcastle, the William Knight-saddled daughter of Profitable was given a BHA mark of 60.

She proved ahead of that assessment with a three-quarter-length margin from Kiritimati when tackling five furlongs for the first time at Southwell two days before the turn of the year.

Keeping to the minimum, Share The Profits should find the improvement needed to overcome a 6lb rise in the weights.
