KEEPER Hill continued the fine run of horses trained by Warren Greatrex when he gained the biggest success of his burgeoning career at the weekend, winning the Grade 2 bet365 December Novices’ Chase at Doncaster over three miles. This was his second win in three starts over fences.

Bred by Sharon Ryan in Cashel, Co Tipperary, Keeper Hill is a six-year-old son of Westerner (Danehill) and he is the second produce of his dam You Take Care (Definite Article). She raced in the colours of JP McManus and was placed a couple of times from just six career starts, most notably being beaten less than a length over hurdles at Limerick.
