BULL by name, Bull by nature. There’s no stopping me at the moment.
Venetia Williams provided followers of Bully’s Bankers with another winner on Monday following on from a successful weekend.
3.10 Cornborough – After a summer on the flat, things have clicked over hurdles for this eight-year-old.
He bumped into one at Wetherby in November, but quickly made amends with a resounding success over the same course and distance.
The handicapper has only raised him 4lbs for that decisive win and that shouldn’t stop him in this weaker race.
3.25 Two For Gold – Kim Bailey has another strong cohort of novice hurdlers and Two For Gold is right up there with his best.
This is a strong race for the grade, but the way he won at Wetherby last time was taking and this longer trip should suit down to the ground.
He’s already rated 131 and there’s plenty more to come from this six-year-old.

3.10 Ayr – Cornborough
3.25 Bangor – Two For Gold
3.40 Newcastle – Loud And Clear
3.40 Loud And Clear – Jim Goldie is a trainer to follow on the all weather at Newcastle, especially if there’s a bit of money around for his runner.
This chap has form figures of 121 on his latest starts on the Toon and gets on brilliantly with jockey Phil Dennis.
Ajman Prince is the danger, but at the same time still has questions surrounding his stamina over this marathon trip.
