BANGOR: PRICE BOOST DOUBLE
After struggles on the flat, the horse was moved on to hurdles by new trainer Peter Bowen with some immediate success, finishing third at Ludlow last month. It remains to be seen if this was a true reflection of his abilities, however with minor question mark over favourite Ashutor, who fell last week at Kempton, this has the makings of a very interesting race.
After a win at [Leicester](https://gg.co.uk/racing/28-dec-2018/leicester-1250() in December, a fourth place at Kempton a month later has tempered any excitement for this Nicky Henderson charge, although to be fair, the horse was badly hampered as they approached the run in. With only four runners, there should be no such problems, but he will need an improved ride to beat the very handy favourite, Copper Gone West.
