RACING: King's Balder aimed for Cheltenham
10:16am Monday 14th October 2013 in Sport
WILTSHIRE horse Balder Succes could turn out again at Cheltenham next weekend after making a successful debut over fences at Chepstow on Saturday.
Barbury Castle trainer Alan King is looking at the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars Novices' Chase for the five-year-old even though it would mean a drop in distance.
"Balder Succes broke the track record and never put a foot wrong on his debut over fences, and I could not have been more pleased with him," King told alankingracing.co.uk.
"It was the perfect start, and there is just a chance that we might run him with his penalty in the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars Novices' Chase at Cheltenham on Saturday.
"We'll see how he comes out of Chepstow, but it is a possibility, and, though he would be coming back in trip, that certainly would not be a problem.
"He spent part of the summer with Adrian Maguire, who rode one of ours in the legends race, and that, plus his couple of runs on the Flat this autumn, seems to have helped restore his confidence."
