Stoney Mountain set for chasing bow
Henry Daly is place to make a call as to where Stoney Mountain will make his debut.
Three options will be discussed by the Ludlow coach with owner Trevor Hemmings’ racing manager Mick Meagher for the six-year-old, who signed over hurdles with victory last month.
Coming up is that the International Decorative Surface Novices’ Chase at Cheltenham on Friday, when he could face powerful opposition for example class scorer Wholestone that is recent.
The bet365 December Novices’ Chase at Doncaster on Saturday is your next option, but he would be shooting on Windsor Avenue along with Sam Spinner, that are both unbeaten over fences up to now.
There is a chance for Stoney Mountain at an additional assembly scheduled for Hereford.
“I have not talked to Mick about it yet. There’s also a beginners’ following week in Hereford. We are going to enter him there as well,” said Daly.
“He’s prepared to run and they’re the 3 novice or novices’ chases he is going to be ready for. I haven’t really looked into it yet.
“My taste, I guess, would be Cheltenham because it appears marginally weaker on paper, but just by a fraction.
“We have been quite pleased with his education. He’s what he is. Unexciting is the incorrect method of putting it he does what he does.”
