Nicky Richards continues to place his horses well and that is shown by his current strike rate of around 23%. BERNARDELLI, his sole runner this afternoon in Ayr’s 2m4f handicap chase, has been a real test of his patience / training skills as the eight-year-old is no world beater and is perhaps not the most natural of jumpers, failing to get round three times in seven chase starts.

However, he can be forgiven the latest of those as it came in a Class 2 at Ascot – he was tailed off when deciding he’d had enough and running out – and this is more his level. Prior to that he’d looked quietly progressive in three runs following a year off, building on his second at Bangor in November when going one better over this trip at Newcastle the following month and jumping far more fluently than has been the case. That all bodes well for his chances of adding to his two chase wins this afternoon in first-time blinkers, which should help him concentrate on the job at hand.
