Drama to Improve
Any Drama gained his first success over hurdles with a wide margin victory in testing conditions at Market Rasen on Tuesday.
He was undoubtedly flattered by the winning distance of 38 lengths as his closest rival Coole Cody came down at the final hurdle.
While it was good to see Any Drama confirm his promise on ground that suits him so well I was disappointed by his jumping throughout the race.
At home his schooling has always been slick which makes it puzzling that he was very sloppy at his hurdles at Market Rasen.
Any Drama is a horse we have always liked and is a possible for the Albert Bartlett Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.
But to justify his entry there he will need to jump a great deal better on his next outing than he did on Tuesday.
