Today’s daily nap comes from Taunton at the 3:30pm race in the name of Hidden Beauty.
Fergal O’Brian has his team in form with four winners from a dozen runners in February and today, the yard will unleash Hidden Beauty under a penalty in the extended 2m mares’ novice hurdle at Taunton. This sex-year old by Kapgarde won with plenty more in hand than the four-length margin of victory over re-opposing rival Passing Reflection when last in action at Doncaster less than a month ago.
That display came after Hidden Beauty ran a fine fourth behind a couple of subsequent winners in Kateira and Fay Ce Que Voudras at Uttoxeter. A longer home straight on Town Moor played to her strengths when she cruised into the lead after jumping three out. Despite wandering about on the approach to the final flight, Hidden Beauty was already home and hosed so Paddy Brennan eased her down.
