6yo Grey Gelding
A horse that looks like a potential step up in trip will be coming shortly, whether they will do this for the festival or make it a focus on next year. But Doctor Brave has some decent form heading into the Festival, only having the four runs under rules, he was a winner on his sole bumper start back in December. He has since run three times over Hurdles, 2nd on his hurdling debut before going on to win his Maiden Hurdle in relatively easy fashion, before going on to run a very decent 3rd in the Red Mills Trial Hurdle at Gowran Park. He was only beaten by just under 2 lengths that day, which could have been a lot less should the jumping late on was better. He looks like he could outrun his odds, but would need to improve in the jumping department to win a top-class race at the festival.
