Ascot only ran twice last season winning very easily at Newcastle first time out on heavy going. He needs to be fresh with long breaks between runs as he is a light individual. He looks to have strengthened up over the summer. We hope he will run in one of the big staying handicap chases, certainly the Borders National is on the cards. He will mix staying Handicap Hurdles with Chases and seems to handle any ground.
By Kapgarde, a very good racehorse in France and decent NH Sire of Milord Thomas, Garde La Victoire etc. and out of Quid De Neuville who was placed Flat/Hurdles and Chase and half-sister to Lili Rochelaise out of a 2m 4f winner.
