- Paxtons For Kverneland Machinery & Genuine Spares Novices' Chase (Class 4)
- 2m 77y, Good (Good to Firm in places, Watered)
- 4 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Contested a competitive 2m4f handicap hurdle at Ayr latest (following wind surgery), and whilst found wanting there should fare better on his rules chasing debut. Good ground will suit.
Top-rated of this quartet over hurdles (132), and is a six-time winner from 26 hurdles starts. Ground conditions in his favour for his chasing debut, so should really be able to make a winning start granted a clear round of fencing.
A two-time hurdles winner for Oliver Greenall (2m good/good to soft). In the process of running a solid race on his second start over fences when falling two out at Newcastle in November (2m good).
Regressive 27-race maiden (0 from 3 over fences). No chance on these terms in novice company barring three non-completions from his much higher rated rivals.
Last Year's Winner
Curious Carlos (4/6), Ballyvic Boru (7/4), Gris De Pron (8/1), Rapid Fritz (125/1)
