Stonethrower has returned from a break in fine form and seemingly much-improved for the switch to fences, as just ten days after breaking his duck over the larger obstacles on his return from a nine-month layoff at Wetherby, he followed up in really good style in a competitive novice handicap chase at Perth on Sunday.

The win gave owner Steve Clarke his third successive win, with Saved By John having taken a novice chase at Uttoxeter in impressive fashion last weekend!
