Teaforthree: Chepstow winner

Teaforthree: Chepstow winner

Teaforthree (7/2)made nearly all the running in the Download The freebets.co.uk App Novices' Chase at Chepstow as Restless Harry could only finish second.

Given a positive ride by Tony McCoy, the Rebecca Curtis-trained gelding jumped well out in front and was able to quicken clear after the home turn.

Curtis had entered the seven-year-old for the Coral Welsh National but as he is not qualified to run, she will look at more novice targets before a trip to Cheltenham.

She said: "We will go for the four-miler at Cheltenham (National Hunt Chase) as that would suit him. Anything long distance suits so we'll be looking for novice staying races.

"We put him in the Welsh National but he hadn't run three times until today so he didn't get in.

"He's a stayer and he might just get caught for pace in something like the RSA Chase," she told At The Races.

Restless Harry (2/1 fav) tried to stay on to launch a challenge but never looked like picking up the leader and was comfortably held at the line.

Colin Tizzard's Cannington Brook (11/2), returning from a break, ran well in third, with Alan King's Trenchant further back in fourth.

Chasing debutants Kind Of Easy and Universal Solider both made mistakes and neither looked like featuring in the finish from an early stage.
