Impressive hurdler The New One has been entered to make a possible chase debut at Ascot on Friday in the Prince’s Countryside Fund Beginners’ Chase.
A superb 16 wins from just 25 lifetime runs shows the class over hurdles of Nigel Twiston-Davies’ eight-year-old and a Cheltenham Festival win in 2013 remains a highlight.
Annie Power has got the better of The New One in his previous two races over hurdles but chasing is now the aim and Ascot is a real option.
Future races at Haydock and Kempton are also on the agenda but it may be just four days until we see one of the elite hurdlers over fences at Ascot.
"He will be entered at Kempton on the 21st and he will be entered at Ascot at the end of next week and he's in at Haydock," said Twiston-Davies.
"He is looking very good.
“You hope he will be as good over fences but you don't know until they do it. His jumping at home has been superb."
Fellow exciting prospects Different Gravy and Clan Des Obeaux are also entered.
Tickets remain on sale for Friday 18thNovember and there is FREE entry to the Queen Anne Enclosure for all should places be booked in advance.Find out more.
