24/05 - A horse who I’ve been looking at for a few weeks and watching replays and studying the collateral form is Stepney Causeway. A previous flat winner, his hurdle debut was a fifth in a strong enough race won by Tritonic who showed some excellent form since. He won his next four by a combined 50.5 lengths! On debut He was over 30 lengths behind the second placed Casa Loupi, but when meeting two starts later he showed some smart improvement winning and beating Casa Loupi by a couple of lengths. He travels strongly and seems to have a very good engine, he had no fancy entries this year but did beat previous two time listed winner Mrs Hyde by 19 lengths, and grade two second Casa Loupi. I think 33/1 is good value for the Arkle next year and will go each way. Hopefully fences was the plan for next year, and owned by the same family as Allmankind who was a live chance for this years Arkle himself.
