2018 Christmas Chase Free Tips and Trends

Great win for Oliver after such a layoff. Original quote: “Monkey Puzzle – showed lots of promise in his first outing for us at Doncaster in December 2016, unfortunately he’s had a troubled time since then – hence the long lay-off. Monkey pulled up suddenly at Ludlow when last seen on a racecourse, he was hopping lame for a couple of strides and was then fine post race, we could find nothing wrong with him. He came back into training the following autumn before picking up a slight tendon injury, he then had a year off. Monkey has had a few further issues which have kept him off track, fortunately he has patient owners that have given him the time to recover fully. We are delighted to get him going again – Monkey is a half brother to Presenting Percy, he has potential we just need a bit of luck now – feel we’ve got a chance here, but goes without saying just be delighted with a positive run and great to see him on the track. Sudden Destination and One More Fleurie look the main dangers.”
