Premier aim for Hammond star
Micky Hammond's Victor Ludorum winner Only Orsenfoolsies is an intended runner in Saturday's totepool.com Premier Kelso Hurdle.
The four-year-old has proved a revelation since going hurdling and handled the step up in class at Haydock with aplomb, staying on stoutly in the closing stages.
A run in the Fred Winter at Cheltenham is unlikely, but a trip to Aintree could be on the cards if he comes through this weekend with flying colours.
"He'll run at Kelso on Saturday," said Hammond.
"He's fit and well and he loves flat, left-handed tracks.
"The wetter the weather, the better for him really.
"We'll see how he gets on this weekend and then maybe look at Aintree, that might be more realistic than Cheltenham.
"The ground won't be an excuse this weekend, that's for sure, he if gets beat it will be lack of ability."
