Timeform on Equus Millar
Apple Rock - 12:25 Wetherby
Placed in points, Apple Rock shaped better than the bare result in a couple of maiden hurdles last season, and he confirmed the promise of those efforts when opening his account on reappearance at Carlisle eight days ago, showing much improved form to make his handicap debut a winning one, he and the runner-up pulling a long way clear of the remainder. That was an encouraging performance and he rates a big player under a penalty.
Hold The Note - 13:00 Wetherby
Despite failing to win in his four outings over fences last term, Hold The Note showed smart form in defeat, including when filling the places in the Grade 2 Hampton Novices' Chase at Warwick and in the Northern Trust Company Novices' Handicap Chase at Cheltenham on his final appearance. He appeals as the sort to keep on improving physically and remains the one to beat on the pick of his form.
Equus Millar - 15:20 Wetherby
A three-time winner over hurdles, Equus Millar made the perfect start over fences when landing a Worcester novice chase in July 2019, clearly taking to chasing well as he ran out an all-the-way winner, well on top at the finish. He is sure to progress and is certain to make his presence felt on his handicap chase debut, provided all is well following a lengthy absence.
HOLD THE NOTE - 13:00 Wetherby
