One chance at Chepstow

It's taken me 5 attempts to log on,,,

Popped up? Of course I am.

Over the years the form of the Nicholls runners has been key to this Chepstow meeting.

At Newton Abbot earlier today Wonderful Charm obliged but Arenice Et Pictons (even money favourite ) was pulled up while Solar Impulse (8/11f) was beaten by Llittle Jon.

Southfield Theatre looks the answer to the 3.40 but will be no price and isn't guaranteed to take to fences.

The market tells us the 4.20 is between the three horses allocated 11-2; Nicky Henderson's Dawalan wasn't the best at his hurdles last term while  Brian Ellison's Manhattan Swing has no more than a Market Rasen novice hurdle to his name in this country.

In the circumstances a chance is taken with Nicholls' Dormello Mo (7/2 or better).

The tapes went up but nobody was keen to make the running - full marks to Harry Skelton who took the initiative aboard 12/1 shot Bertimont and never saw another runner, coming home 16 lengths ahead of 13/8 favourite Dawalan.

Selection Dormello Mo (3/1) raced second for much of the race but ran out of petrol before the last, coming home a well-beaten fifth.
