King eyes Huntingdon success

07 February 2013 05:10:12 EST

The in-form Alan King yard heads for one of its happy hunting grounds at Huntingdon today buoyed by the success of Cheltenham-bound Medinas.

Having seen his Welsh Champion Hurdle winner show the 'heart of a lion' to come out victorious, he's looking for more success from the string today.

King declared: "Huntingdon is certainly one of our happier hunting grounds down the years and Bakbenscher could do well. Bakbenscher is 11/2 to win the 3.45 at Huntingdon.

"He certainly won't mind the ground and revelled in the mud when he won at Haydock before Christmas. He then went on to finish third at Newbury a week later.

Huntingdon is certainly one of our happier hunting grounds down the years.

"He has now gone up another two pounds which puts him on 137 but I still think he can be competitive off that mark."

The yard also send out Seventh Sign (8/1 to win the 3.15). He made a winning debut over hurdles at Newbury and came on a lot for the experience.

King added: "He wore blinkers when he was trained in Ireland and although I did not want to put the headgear on first time out for us, the blinds will go on at Huntingdon.
