5th October - Fontwell
One runner today at Fontwell.
3.30pm Cervaro Mix runs in a handicap chase over 2m 2f.
Alan won around here on his last outing before a summer break, that was also his first run over fences.
Alan is a keen going sort who usually jumps well but he can occasionally be over brave, it was only a three runner affair last time and he made all the running but he certainly doesn’t need to front run.
Once he learns to relax in his races more he will get further.
Alan is an honest, enthusiastic horse and one slight concern I do have is that he could over race after a break especially when carrying top weight.
Alan is a nice person at home, he is good to ride but can be very strong on the gallops.
He will be ridden by Gavin Sheehan who is the retained jockey to Andrew & Kate Brooks when he’s available.
Alan is looked after and will be led up by Flora Alessandroni, he is ridden at home by Andy Llewellyn.
