Litterale Ci is The Messenger sole bet on Sunday from Worcester.
Worcester 3.40: Litterale Ci
An excellent summer hurdle can go the way of the progressive mare Litterale Ci who is really beginning to justify a hefty price tag now she is being campaigned on good going.
Her best form in France on the flat came on top of the ground, but she was in danger of becoming disappointing after flopping a few times over hurdles. She did win on soft at Ludlow in December, but it was obvious she hated the heavy ground at Cheltenham next time and she was laboured on similar going at Wincanton in March.
However drying conditions have favoured her and she has won her last two races. A narrow battling success over 2m at Stratford was followed by a more comfortable success on her first try at 2m4f at Ffos Las last time. She has been partnered by Aine O’Connor for all three wins and the useful amateur is back on board today.
