What A Friend

Paul Nicholls’s gelding jumped really well throughout this three-mile novices’ chase at Cheltenham. He showed a nice turn of foot to come clear of Ballyfitz, who had been impressive in landing a similar event at Cheltenham’s December meeting. What A Friend finished third behind Aigle D’Or in a Grade 2 novices’ hurdle at Cheltenham last January, he obviously likes the place, and quotes of 14/1 about him for Sun Alliance Chase are reasonable.
