“Chubbys Caviar is our obvious best chance and Itsur Mate looks the obvious danger” said trainer Mark Wallis in his column this week.

The Lakenheath handler once again proved that he is as good a judge as he is trainer as the pair finished in that order in the Bunny Gold Cup Final at Henlow.

In what proved a buckle, the Coronation Cup runner-up was led by Paul Young’s runner but led at the fourth turn and came home with a length and a half to spare in 33.88 (-30) for the 550m.
