We rode Chase End Charlie too handy and paid the price, frustrating for us all. Mary Eleanor made a nice debut finishing 3rd beaten a head and a short head. No one expects that in a national hunt bumper, those winning distances are more suited to flat racing. Naturally we were delighted with her run but hugely disappointed to finish 3rd having run so well.
Tomorrow Agamemmon and Brandon Hill go to Kempton, both horses are well and should give a good account of themselves.
