Grand National Festival attendee Camprond heads a field of six runners at Market Rasen on Friday, as the five-year-old aims to land his second success of the season in a novices’ hurdle.
The son of Lope De Vega has been fairly consistent since joining the Somerset trainer’s yard, finishing in the top three in all five of his starts.
The gelding finished second on his British debut at Huntingdon back in November, but he failed to justify odds-on favouritism on his next start at Sedgefield as he finished third at the short price of 2/7.
After a three-month break, he landed his first victory since switching yard as he claimed a maiden hurdle at Taunton.
Camprond was immediately sent handicapping and appeared in the Pinsent Masons Handicap Hurdle at the Aintree Festival.
Going off as 9/2 favourite, he did little wrong and finished a respectable second behind Stuart Edmunds’ Rowland Ward.
The five-year-old made the jump into Graded company a month later, producing another good performance to finish third in the Swinton Handicap Hurdle at Haydock.
Camprond is the clear one to beat at Market Rasen on Friday afternoon and is currently sitting at a price of 1/6.
