In what looks to be a two-horse contest is also such an intriguing affair with arguably two of the best novice chasers in the UK at the moment battling it out once again, but this time over the larger obstacles.
Bravemansgame was beaten in the Sefton Novices Hurdle last season by Ahoy Senor, but really does look the part this season as a chaser.
Two starts over the bigger obstacles so far this term with two wins, including a 2 and a half length win in a top graduation chase at Haydock in November, with some Graded winners in behind.
He jumps the fences for fun and has made all in both of his starts over them, but he is arguably yet to have a real test yet, but you can’t help with being very impressed with what we have seen so far from him.
A horse trained by the champion trainer Paul Nicholls is always going to peak the racing fans interest, and once that looks as talented as Bravemansgame will always have a lot of support.
He was a Grade 1 winner over Hurdles in the Challow last December and finished 3rd in the Ballymore Novices at the Cheltenham Festival.
He looks even better over fences and has been compared to a few of the greats by his trainer that he has trained in the past.
Very exciting horse who is unbeaten over fences this term, a superb jumper who makes it a test from the front.
Fascinating battle with Ahoy Senor who he looks for redemption against.
