Bromley Reveals Top Notch Plans

Bromley Reveals Top Notch Plans

Racing manager Anthony Bromley says the Peterborough Chase or King George could be options for Top Notch. The Nicky Henderson-trained gelding is first being aimed in the Christy 1965 Chase at Ascot on November 24 but, all going well, a feature race at Kempton is on the cards.

Bromley has now opened up on the plans for Top Notch and the 32Red King George VI Chase at Kempton is a goal, while December’s Peterborough Chase at Huntingdon is another option.

He said: “It would be nice to build him up to winning another Grade One chase, as he won three Grade Two races last season.

“I think he will have a similar path to last season. He might get a prep run at Aintree in the hurdle he ran in last season.

“That’s what we were thinking of doing if the ground is safe, which would be a nice pipe-opener over two and a half and then go for the 1965 Chase at Ascot which he won last year. That would be his first target.

“Then it is a choice of whether he goes for the Peterborough Chase or King George after that, but we have to see how the Ascot race goes.”
