Rosemauve at Stratford this afternoon

Rosemauve is top weight in the 4.20 at Stratford this afternoon.

He certainly has his quirks and is not an easy ride; however, when he puts his best foot forward, he has plenty of ability. A couple of years back I had a decent win with this horse in a D rated handicap hurdle on firm ground over three miles at Ludlow.

His latest effort appears to have been particularly stubborn. Looking at the form, you could take the view that he hasn't taken to chasing all that well. If the return to hurdles today where to signal a return to form he wouldn't be without a chance in what looks a pretty competitive race.

Several bookmakers, including Stan James and Totalbet, offer 20/1. That looks a big price for a horse from the Pipe yard. If you're tempted, an each way wager is affordable at that price.

Rosemauve was pulled up. RP's comments in running include 'reminders after second, lost place after third'. No longer in love with the game by the look of this performance; one to steer clear of until showing better form and more interest.
