- Newark Festival 15 & 16th June 2018 Novices' Handicap Chase (Class 4)
- 1m 7f 153y, Good (Watering)
- 2 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Dotted up in a couple of weak novice hurdles last year although didn't always look straightforward, and form went off the boil a little after that. Bred for fences, so may improve for the switch, but needs a fluent round on chase debut tonight.
Plenty of good chasing winners on the dam's side, and connections wasting little time in getting him over fences. Excuses for some moderate efforts over hurdles (soft ground) and likely to leave hurdles form behind now tackling the bigger obstacles.
