The Sportsman's Verdict
LOSTINTRANSLATION only gained one success over hurdles last season which came in a maiden here at the Ladbrokes Trophy meeting. That said, he posted some fantastic efforts in defeat and produced a career-best effort last time out when only just denied in a Grade 1 by Black Op over 2m4f at Aintree, his first run beyond 2m under Rules. The son of Flemensfirth has the scope for further improvement over intermediate trips and appeals as the type to achieve a lot more over fences. La Bague Au Roi was a classy mare over the smaller obstacles, winning in Grade 2 company at Ascot in January, and has the size to make up into a decent chaser, while Thomas Campbell and Talkischeap are no back numbers on what they have both shown over timber.
