Crievehill

Crievehill is a seven-year-old gelding who ran eight times the season before last, winning twice and accumulating prize money in every race bar his seasonal debut and rising 12lb in the handicap to 139. Those two wins included a Class 3 Handicap Chase at Sandown by twenty lengths and finished that season with an excellent run when caught close home in the final of a valuable Novice Handicap Chase Series at Haydock.

After a summer at grass, Crievehill came back with a good attitude and last season’s debut at Uttoxeter was very encouraging, jumping like a stag throughout the race and finishing runner-up. With his first taste of the Grand National fences at Aintree, Crievehill showed in the Grand Sefton Chase that he not only jumps impeccably but would relish a step up in trip. He was somewhat disappointing on his next outing at Wetherby where he faded in what was a fast run race, following which he finished fourth in a very competitive Swinley Chase at Ascot.

With rain finally having arrived Nigel Twiston-Davies decided to run him in the Kim Muir at the Cheltenham Festival in March. Crievehill led from an early stage and jumped superbly until being headed in the latter stages, but stayed on gamely to finish fourth of the 23 starters. With conditions remaining so dry Nigel was unable to get another run out of Crievehill last season.

The new season started in impressive fashion when Crievehill outjumped his rivals to win a Handicap Chase at Wetherby, overcoming the shorter than ideal distance and good to soft (he prefers softer) going.  His trainer has the Grand National as his potential long term target, all very exciting!
