- Brett Martin Cascade Novices' Chase (Class 3)
- 3m 1f 170y,
- 3 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Less exposed than his two rivals over fences (only a couple of runs in Novice Chases). Highest rated in the field after those two efforts. Should improve markedly from his most recent effort which was after an eight-month break. The one to beat.
Came agonisingly close to breaking his maiden duck at the fifth attempt over fences when denied by the rallying Who's My Jockey at Hexham (3m; good to soft) this month. That was still a decent effort and this is a slightly easier task.
Becoming quite frustrating and was turned over as an odds-on favourite for the third time in his relatively short career when second at Fontwell (2m3f; good) last time. Showed quite an unwilling attitude then and quite a bit to prove now.
