    Completely agree with that, but it’s early days for him and he was a Grade One winner over hurdles so you’d think they would be aiming slightly higher then a handicap at this stage?

    Yes. Almost certainly.

    Another nudge towards the RSa for IO then.,.. too many options in the JLT

    Yeah was hoping he’d make up into a JLT horse for exactly that reason!!

    "I thought he might be one of our two-milers this year but, looking at that, he needs further," said Mullins.

    "I was hoping he'd be a Grade One horse (over fences) but looking at that it will be quite a climb."

    You might be on to something though...

    The owners (as someone pointed out on the forum last year) have a RIDICULOUSLY good record in handicaps too at the festival... I might request a price and see what happens

    Following a review of your request, I can confirm that we would be happy to offer a price of

    16/1 for Saturnas in the Close Brothers Novices' Handicap Chase.

    Paddy Power have introduced him at 10/1 (I haven't requested that)

    Not particularly for this race. But keep an eye out for Gordon's entries on trials day. He entered the storyteller up last year for a handicap to check his mark for the martin pipe.
