Five heavy defeats in Ireland for Paul Nolan and another on debut for this yard, showing promise in the latter; with tongue tied first time, he was then only 6-1 for a 12-runner novice handicap at Hereford (2m4f, good to soft) eight days ago and won it, always prominent; that was a conditional jockeys' race, so he carries no penalty today (due to go up 7lb) and Ned Fox retains the ride; one for the shortlist.
