Trainer Sophie Leech has an eyecatching record in hurdle races at Sedgefield over the last 5 seasons:

5 runs 3 wins 1 placed

In non-handicaps:

3 Runs 2 wins 1 placed

This horse was fairly useful on the flat for Jim Bolger. Not long with Paul Nicholls after that but the Leech yard often finds finds the key to horses that didn't lived up to expectations when with bigger stables.

Stable has had 1 winner and 2 horses placed last 14 days.

Meaghar's Flag 3rd place behind 143-rated Pacify and 123-rated Sea The Sea at Stratford 2 runs ago wasn't a bad performance in my opinion.

Meaghar's Flag entry for a novice hurdle at Lingfield on Monday with several recent winners in the line up suggests that connections must have seen something encouraging at home.

Will be interesting to see if there is some money going down on this one.
