Diamond Harry is reported to be in fine shape ahead of his final prep run before lining up in the RSA Chase at Cheltenham in March.
The current 7-1(Paddy Power) third favourite for the RSA Chase faces a maximum of three runners in the toteplacepot Novices’ Chase at Newbury tomorrow.
Third in last year’s Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle behind Mikael D’Haguenet at Cheltenham, the seven-year-old created a favourable impression on his chase debut at Haydock last month when partnered by Barry Geraghty.
"It's only a small field, but the smaller the better and three would be even better," said trainer Nick Williams.
"This was always the plan after Haydock and before Cheltenham. He's just been ticking over. He's been going well and there have been no problems.
"Timmy never sits on him until race day. We are all looking forward to it. It's Cheltenham next stop, it's all systems go and he's in good form."
