Dancing Shadow ran a fine race yesterday at Exeter to finish second in the 3m handicap chase under Richard Johnston. This should set him up for the 3m 6f handicap chase at the same course on December 6th, he is a stout stayer who excels on distances exceeding 3m 4f.

Bolving put in a very good performance to finish third at Hereford on Monday in the 2m 4f novice handicap chase. He was running on Strongly and will stay further on good ground. On the same card Ut Majeur Almes made a pleasing comeback in the 2m handicap chase under top weight. He needs to drop a few pounds, then he should become more competitive.

Minnie Escape and Bindon Lane run at Chepstow today. It will be interesting to see if Minnie Escape backs up her performance from last week.
