Successful for Sean Curran in 2m3f Fontwell handicap hurdle (soft) and in 2m4f Leicester novice handicap chase (good) in February; well beaten later in month at latter venue before picked up by Elliott team for GBP8,000 at Ascot March Sales; interesting to see if top trainer can eke out improvement.
