Tim Vaughan: Trains Our Island

Tim Vaughan's eight-year-old went one better than 12 months previously when finishing fifth in the marathon chase.

Vaughan said: "I was pleased with how he jumped and travelled, it was much better than last year.

"We'll look to drop him in grade now and maybe something like the Eider Chase later in the season might be for him.

"We'll have a look for a small confidence-booster over three miles or further for him somewhere first."
