Somersby ran a fabulous race last Saturday at Ascot when he lost to Master Minded in the Victor Chandler Chase by a rapidly diminishing short head. It was very exciting and his career best performance. He was well ridden by Hadden Frost who is now getting to know the horse and they are cementing a good partnership. The burning question now is do we run him in the Queen Mother Champion Chase (2 miles) or the Ryanair Chase 2m 5f. Watch this space. Meanwhile Calgary Bay goes for next Saturday’s Great Yorkshire Chase at Doncaster and if all goes well he will then contest the Grand National.
