Chantry House is a horse we have been following for a very long time since joining the respected yard of Nicky Henderson and bought by leading owner JP McManus after winning a point to point impressively back in December 2018.
His first outing during his rules career for Henderson came at Warwick in a decent enough bumper where he bolted up in heavy conditions.
He saw off the progressive Edwardstone that day that has since gone on to win two of his three challenges over hurdles including when beating Fidlerontheroof who has franked that form when winning the Grade One Tolworth Hurdle.
Chantry House subsequently has made his debut over hurdles and that came at Cheltenham on the Friday of their December meeting and although needing the run managed to cosily get up close home to land a nice Novice Hurdle event.
Again this races has since seen the form been massively franked with second placed Stolen Silver winning a nice Grade Two last time out which included a photo-finish with Edwardstone.
Also fourth placed that day was Pileon for Philip Hobbs and the gelding after being beaten by Chantry House has hosed upon two occasions.
The six year old looks to have a very bright future and if winning comfortably again on Saturday could go to the top of the Supreme Novice Hurdle betting.
