ON THE MOVE; Horses having their first run for a new trainer.

Joe Brown returns to hurdles on his debut for Charlie Longsdon in a handicap at Hereford (3.00), having held every chance when falling at the last on his first run over fences for Heather Dalton at Worcester back in October 2006. He hasn't been seen since.

"We've had him since the summer,"

Longsdon said yesterday. "He came off nine months' box rest as he fractured a navicular bone when he fell.

"We have taken it steady with him and got him back to fitness. There are a couple of decent horses in there, but he's a nice sort and he has been crying out to run for a month."

Carrig An Uisce makes a belated British debut for Anna Brooks in division one of the novice hurdle at Hereford (1.30), 17 months after he was bought for 9,300gns at Doncaster sales.

The seven-year-old showed progressive form in five runs over hurdles in Ireland for Paul Nolan - and is only eligible for today's race due to the actions of the stewards.

He finished first past the post in a handicap hurdle at Downpatrick when last seen in March 2006, but had caused interference by veering left in the closing stages and was demoted to third after an inquiry.
