Tom has two booked rides today at Chepstow

Winner No28 yesterday at Bangor - Betterforeveryone kept the boss smiling – and owner Rupert Anton, too – when, clearly appreciating the step up in class, he made it third time lucky in the staying handicap hurdle at Bangor on Tuesday.

The five-year-old looks a fine stamp of horse and Tom Cannon was impressed, leaving race-readers with the distinct feeling that, while more victories over timber are likely to be in store, he could be even better when he goes over fences.

It was Betterforeveryone’s first race since April, so it is reasonable to assume that he will improve for this comeback.

3:45 FOREVER WILLIAM - Pick of last season's juvenile hurdle form makes him of interest on return from a break.

Owners - The Banbury Lions 6 - Trainer - Alan King

5:30 PASSIONATE PURSUIT - Second in an Irish point; bought for £40,000; trainer has fair bumper record.

Owner - G C Myddelton - Trainer - Alan King

Report from Alan Kings website by Geoff Lester.

We have four runners today, split equally between Chepstow and Fakenham, but stable jockey Tom Cannon makes the trip to the Gwent course to ride Forever William in the handicap hurdle and Irish recruit Passionate Pursuit, who makes her debut for us in the bumper, having finished been bought after finishing second in a point-to-point in April.

Forever William never fired when a beaten odds-on favourite at Fakenham last time, but Chepstow regulars will remember him showing plenty of promise when finishing third in the Grade 1 Finale Junior Hurdle at the Christmas meeting there, so the gelding will be happier back on a galloping track.
