Mark Rimell's nine-year-old enjoyed a fruitful campaign two seasons ago when he landed a five-timer in decent handicap company before rounding things off with a respectable fourth in the Queen Mother at the Festival in March.
He made a highly-promising return to action when a close-up third behind Kauto Star Kauto Star (born 19th March 2000) is a French bred National Hunt racehorse, who is currently trained by Paul Nicholls in England.
After a successful beginning to his jumping career in France, Kauto Star (pronounced "Kor-toe") has had an extremely successful career in England. in the Tingle Creek before things took a turn for the worse.
Sent off the 5-4 favourite for the Castleford Chase The Castleford Chase is a National Hunt handicap chase in the United Kingdom for five-year-old and above horses. It is run over a distance of 2 miles (3,219 metres) at Wetherby Racecourse in December. There are twelve fences to be jumped in the race. later in December, Oneway trailed in a long way behind the principals, but excuses for that tame effort subsequently emerged.
Rimell's horses were apparently suffering from a mystery illness for much of last campaign, but the yard is back in flying form now as the recent victories of Crossbow Creek have shown.
And while Oneway will need to bounce right back to his best to score off a mark of 155 in a competitive race, he looks just the sort to continue his rise through the ranks now Rimell is firing on all cylinders.
Earlier on the card, the Tom Hogan-trained Kalderon should provide Prestbury Park punters with a little value in the Anglo Irish Private Banking Novices' Hurdle (1.55).
He looks sure to bump into some of the early-season talking horses in what promises to be a cracking renewal.
As a result, he might be sent off at a bigger price than he deserves.
While he is sure to find this contest a good deal stiffer than the two he has mopped up already this autumn, the manner of his victory in a Grade Three affair suggests he will provide a stern test for the opposition.
He landed a Listed race on the level prior to his recent victories over timber and is clearly an above-average type worthy of considerable respect.
Jumping action also takes place at Newcastle, where Silver Sedge sedge, common name for members of the Cyperaceae, a family of grasslike and rushlike herbs found in all parts of the world, especially in marshes of subarctic and temperate zones. looks a likely type in the Blackberry blackberry, name for several species of thorny plants of the genus Rubus of the family Rosaceae (rose family). See bramble.
blackberry Handicap Chase (3.20).
The seven-year-old is no world-beater, but has a good attitude and finished last season on an upward curve having won two of his final four races.
Despite shooting up through the handicap as a result, Silver Sedge should have more to offer this season and made an acceptable return to action over hurdles at Carlisle.
He showed up well for much of the contest before weakening late on and ought to be ready to strike now he has enjoyed a pipe-opener and goes back over fences.
Dotty's Daughter is fancied to notch up her hat-trick in the Experience Nottinghamshire Nursery at Southwell (1.45).
While she is clearly nothing out of the ordinary, this Forzando filly filly
young female horse up to first breeding or 4 years, then a maiden mare. Called filly foal up to weaning, then weanling filly to 1 year, then yearling filly to 2 years. knows what the game is all about and could hardly be coming into the race in better form.
She steps out of selling company here, but there is relatively little strength in depth so should be capable of going close once again.
All-weather action is also staged at Wolverhampton, where Special Moment is taken to grab a deserved victory in the Book Your 2007 Conference Now Handicap (3.50).
The Barry Hills-trained three-year-old is still a maiden, but showed up well enough in her last two races to suggest her turn is near.
