Emma Lavelle sends one for this Ayr contest over 2m 4f, in the shape of nine-year-old Hang In There. He was useful over hurdles but has been even better over fences, with five wins from seven runs over the larger obstacles at the likes of Wincanton, Worcester and Uttoxeter. All his wins had come at class three level before impressively landing Grade Two Boodles ‘Rising Stars’ Novices’ Chase at Wincanton in November, beating Mortlach by three and a half lengths.
We haven’t seen him since that victory, but he has a good chance of continuing his very good record over fences if going well again. One to keep an eye on.
