Cantlow (l): Set to have his first start for J P McManus

Paul Webber will send out his first runner for owner JP McManus at Warwick on Wednesday when Cantlow lines up in the Colliers Reduce Empty Business Rates Novices' Chase.

The seven-year-old showed a decent level of form over hurdles and was only beaten two lengths into third by Cape Tribulation in the Pertemps Final at the Cheltenham Festival in March.

He will face seven rivals on his return, including Charlie Longsdon's Hazy Tom, and Webber revealed that all his career to date has just been a prelude to him going chasing.

"He's a half-brother to Darkness, who was a smart chaser for Charlie Egerton, so we've always viewed him as a chaser," said Webber.

"Mr (AP) McCoy used to ride Darkness so it will be nice to have him riding Cantlow and he'll be our first runner for Mr McManus. It was a private sale.

"The trip of two miles won't be ideal for him but it's difficult to find the right race for these novices now, as so many have said.

"He is rated 143 so he was too high to run in the novice chase at Ascot on Saturday which was for 0-140s. This should be a good introduction."
