Gary Moore sends one runner to the Grade Two Game Spirit Chase at Newbury on Saturday in the form of Editeur Du Gite. The ten-year-old arrives here at Newbury on the back of finishing last of five in the Grade One Clarence House Chase last month at Cheltenham after a bad mistake prevented any chance of him winning the race.
He had recorded a good win in the G2 Desert Orchid at Kempton after Christmas beforehand, with fellow runner and favourite there Boothill falling at the eighth fence. That was his best run for a while but he is a tough type who could bounce back in this contest.
The bold-jumping front runner will look to head into next month's Cheltenham Festival with a big run at Newbury but this does look like a competitive race with a few chances.
