Chase at Aintree. Re­gard­ing hav­ing a crack at the King George, he could be the right horse for that race as he’s im­prov­ing all the time – he’s still a young horse. He’s got a spe­cial place in my heart. WHITE MOON is an ex­cit­ing horse trained by Colin Tiz­zard who will go novice chas­ing. He won nicely at Wincanton and Ex­eter but then went to Sandown and came back a lit­tle stiff. It was dis­cov­ered he had frac­tured his pelvis, but all is good now. sea­son when he fin­ished sixth. He trav­elled very well on that oc­ca­sion but did not quite get home up the hill. He will be a much stronger horse this sea­son and we are ex­cited about him.

SHELFIELD is very much a dark horse as he’s never run be­fore, but I like him. He’s a three-year-old by that good jump­ing sire Kayf Tara. He will be run­ning in a bumper around Christ­mas time. in the Old Roan Chase at Aintree a cou­ple of weeks ago when third be­hind Frodon. Hope­fully, with a bit of luck in run­ning, he can show he’s a high-qual­ity horse. UPPERTOWN PRINCE fin­ished fourth last sea­son in Grade One hur­dle at Aintree be­hind San­tini. I rode him on that oc­ca­sion and he prob­a­bly should have fin­ished closer as we did not get much room. He’s a very nice prospect who is trained by Don­ald McCain. The plan is to go novice chas­ing.
