Poor old Itoldyou was again frustrated in his effort to record a victory this season. Under Leighton Aspell he was ridden prominently through the 3 mile 1 furlong contest. He was obviously enjoying himself, jumping well on the faster ground. He dropped back a couple of lengths round the final turn but battled back to share the lead over the final fence. He was unable to hold onto the lead, going down by 2 and half lengths to a younger rival, but he held off the challenge of another runner for second place. This was another courageous effort and he seemed pleased with himself afterwards.
Itoldyou returns after his run.
Linda was also in the money with her other two runners, Moneystown finishing 4th in the Novices' chase and Kayflin taking the same position in the mares' handicap chase.
