Fergal O’Brien Considers Jarveys Plate Will show the benefit of a Brief break by Leaning back to form in the Ladbrokes Kauto Star Novices’ Chase at Kempton.
Having defeated Grade One winner Reserve Tank on his chasing bow in Chepstow Jarveys Plate was unable to follow up once he beat one rival home at Haydock.
O’Brien intends to freshen the dual Listed winner before his first start over three miles beneath principles, on his return.
“It was unsatisfactory on Saturday, since he beat Reserve Tank earlier,” said the Cotswolds trainer.
“He was athletic and ready first time out, and beat two decent horses. It was an odd man.
“We shall only loosen up him and visit Kempton to your Kauto Star.”

“I felt I had to continue strong with him when I probably needed never have completed – but you live and learn”
