Restless Harry: Not 100% at Wetherby where he disappointed

Sky Bet

Restless Harry was not 100% after his disappointing comeback in the John Smith's Hurdle at Wetherby last Saturday.

Having won the Grade Two 12 months ago, Robin Dickin's stable star was lumbered with a penalty which made his job harder but he dropped away tamely to finish last of the six runners.

Having run over fences last season, the aim was always to head back over the bigger obstacles but Dickin is carrying out a few tests to check there is nothing wrong with him long-term.

"It was always the plan to go back chasing with him anyway," said Dickin.

"It's just a case of watch this space, possibly he'll run in a three-mile beginners' chase at Kempton, I'm just not setting anything in stone yet.

"It was nothing to do with the ground on Saturday, he just wasn't focussed on the job and in that company you need to be on your game 100%.

"He gave a couple of coughs when he came back and while he isn't really ill, I've had him checked out and am expecting the results back soon."
