Mixing It With The Big Boys

Itoldyou showed that he could mix it with the big boys when competing in a (0-135) handicap chase at Kempton today (15/4/2014).  Nicky Henderson, Paul Nicholls, Kim Bailey, Philip Hobbs and Emma Lavelle all had runners.  With the ground drying quickly it was necessary for Itoldyou to keep closer to the pace and Andrew Thornton had him in the right place throughout to be competitive at the end.  He moved into 4th place rounding the bend for home and soon took third.  He stayed on over the final two fences to be beaten three quarters of a length and six lengths.  In this company it could well prove to be his best run to date.
