Coral Racing Club Novices' Limited Handicap Chase (3) Class 3

  • Distance: 2m 92y
  • Age: 4yo
  • Runners: 6
  • Prize: £21,000

Built for chasing and left his hurdle form behind when winning 2m novices at Ffos Las (handicap) and Cheltenham last month. More will be needed from a mark in the 140s but he might find it.

Fairly useful hurdler who has taken well to fences this autumn, second at Newton Abbot before going one better in a 2m Chepstow novice handicap. Well on top at the finish on that occasion and it's likely there's more to come.

Won a Taunton novice hurdle and a Wincanton handicap hurdle (both around 2m) at the end of 2021. Absent since a disappointing run at Kempton in January but retains potential now chasing.

Useful 2-time winner in a novice hurdle season which culminated with a third of 21 in a competitive 2½m handicap at the Aintree Grand National meeting. Makes chase debut back from 7 months off (runner-up in a point at the start of his career).

Surpassed any of his hurdle exploits (won twice last term) when making a successful start to his chase career in a 2¼m Kempton novice handicap 18 days ago. That form was boosted when the third won back at Kempton on Monday. Effectively 8 lb higher (2 lb out of weights) but it may not stop him.
