DUAL bumper winner KNOCKARA BEAU was ridden with more restraint at Kelso on his second outing over hurdles than at Aintree on his debut. Unfortunately, he got outpaced on the home turn and, despite staying on strongly up the run-in, had to settle for third spot.
There are races to be won over hurdles and fences.
JEMEZ faded out of contention after doing too much for most of the way on his chasing bow at Kelso. Hopefully, he will not be so keen next time and can take advantage of a decent mark.
Keep an eye on CAMDEN GEORGE after his promising first effort over fences at Carlisle.
Returning from a lengthy absence, he will be all the better for the experience and his jumping should improve as a result.
For TOT O'WHISKEY there was no disgrace in being narrowly beaten by the talented but enigmatic Faasel at Carlisle. He was giving 4lb to the classy winner and a return to novice company and over a slightly longer trip should see him back on the winning trail.
There was encouragement from the reappearance of MIDDLETON DENE at Kempton. He stayed on to take fourth under a sympathetic ride and, although he has little margin for error off his current rating, he could well pick up a similar handicap before long.
