Last season Bering Upsun won first time out at Kelso in a novice handicap chase. He couldn’t really reproduce that early form again unfortunately and uncharacteristically for us was let down by his jumping. This may have been due perhaps to the very testing ground and the horses not being quite right but he also has had his share of problems with kissing spines etc. He has had an early run at Hexham over hurdles (2m4f) going off favourite and jumped much better but was always outpaced on the quick going and is perhaps a doubtful stayer. A flat galloping track and the softer going should see him at his best but he is not the easiest to train being a big fragile horse who needs everything to be right on the day. However, he is well capable off a mark of 88 over hurdles 93 chase.
And Beyond (by Darshaan) was a winner of the Queens Vase at Ascot Group 3 and a smart stayer on the Flat. He has not covered a huge amount of mares but has had some success with Bumpers and Flat horses Castlemorris King and Wor Lass, both winners of nine races each. And Beyond is a Stallion standing locally, so it will be interesting to see how his runners progress Hurdling and Chasing.
The Dam Bering Up is well bred by Bering and Dam Sire is Darshaan so a good stout staying pedigree.
Bering Upsun was bred locally by Heather Walker and Iain Todd, and broken in by Diana Carter.
