3rd Apr 2021 Result 3rd 9/1 – Republican – Oliver Sherwood Haydock

Place money landed. Original quote: "
Republican began the season over fences where he ran with credit on both occasions and jumped very well.
He was carrying a lot of weight on his second outing at Fontwell on heavy ground and it just left its mark, he went quiet on me, so I gave him a good break over Christmas and into the new year. Republican returned to action again in February and because of the time frame I decided to revert back to hurdles and start afresh novice chasing next season, with another summer on his back I think he’ll make up into a nice chaser. Republican is a thorough stayer who will handle most ground conditions, he’s been in good form again at home lately and because of his honest nature he will give a good account. Open race and small place claims, but just be happy with a step forward here.
