25th Nov 2017 1st 12/1 – Toviere – Oliver Sherwood Ascot

Battled on bravely to take this and lead home a TQ 1-2-3 in the race. Original quote: “Toviere has had two runs over fences at Fontwell and Huntingdon, he jumped well on both occasions he was just beaten by better horses at level weights. Today is a handicap so in theory he is better off but I don’t think he is particularly well handicapped. He has only run over 3m once before and seemed not to get the trip but I think he is a stronger horse now and everything about him tells me he will want this trip. Place claims in a competitive race.”
