image-left-align HeyhoeSpring has signalled a welcome return to form for Malcolm Jefferson, with a superb Aintree festival winner in the shape of Cyrus Darius and judging by the general good form of his horses, the Malton-based trainer may well be in for another graded winner courtesy of the hat-trick seeking Oscar Rock, who holds strong claims in the Future Champion Novices’ Chase (2.00) on a difficult card at Ayr on Saturday.
