2.00 ERSG Arkle Novice Chase (Grade 1) 2m 1f

Bapaume: Very talented gelding who ran far better than his final position would suggest on his chasing debut and then impressed to beat a stack of subsequent winners at Naas. A feature of his chasing efforts has been his good jumping which will stand him in good stead as he drops back to this trip for this assignment. He has prospects of getting closely involved.
