Express back on track
Mendip Express gave us our fifth success in five days at Warwick on Wednesday.
Running over hurdles for the first time in more than two years he jumped fluently and beat a field of novices with plenty to spare.
Life will be much harder for him over fences this season as he is now on mark of 145 after such a rewarding campaign last winter.
He is in the Hennessy Gold Cup but is more likely to carry a penalty next in another staying novice hurdle.
