BARRYS JACK makes winning chasing debut

Barrys Jack: won his chasing debut in good style

BARRYS JACK won the two-mile Novices' Handicap Chase at Perth in good style under Danny Cook on what was his first start over fences for us. Fresh and well following a break, he jumped and travelled enthusiastically for much of the race, getting a lead for the first three fences before taking up the running on landing over the fourth. In a little close at the fourth last, and not great at the third last, he jumped the remaining two okay and kept on well to score by three lengths.

Owned in partnership by Dan Gilbert, Mark Lawrence and Andrew Bruce, the Well Chosen gelding had been schooling well over fences at home and prior to purchase earlier this year had run in seven Point-to-Points before switching to hurdling in Ireland.

The seven-year-old ran five times over hurdles for us, putting in a couple of good placed efforts before we gave him a break with a view to Novice Chasing this season. A great start and delighted for all concerned.
