1pt win Flash Collonges @4/1, 15:35 Newbury, Wednesday

2m6½f MansionBet Proud To Support British Racing Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase (GBB Race) (Class 3) (5yo+)

FLASH COLLONGES was by far the highest-rated hurdler out of this crop of novices, but was always fancied to be a better chaser than hurdler. He was set a very tough assignment being put up against star novice Ahoy Senor on debut when jumping well, but getting left for dead in the straight over this track.

Paul Nicholls commented that he was well behind the rest of the yard in terms of fitness after surgery on both his wind and his eye. That might explain why he bowed out in that contest and he is entitled to come on significantly for the run. He now drops to a much lower grade although has to give weight away to a few promising types.

But he is fancied to show himself up into being a pretty decent performer over fences and is worth a punt in the lucky last on the card.
