Silver In Disguise is a fast-improving novice and he supplemented his Catterick success three weeks ago with a ready win at Chepstow yesterday, with Charlie Price again in the saddle.

Racing off a 15lbs higher mark and hiked in grade, he was niggled along with a mile to go and looked to have plenty of work to do to catch the long-time leader when entering the straight.  However, after the front one made a bad mistake at the fourth last, Silver In Disguise was soon closing in and, joining issue at the last, he jumped it well and stayed on strongly to score by four lengths.

Stamina looks like being his forte and having stepped up from 2m to 2m3f here, we will now look for something over 2m6f+ next time.  I’m sure the handicapper will have his say once again, but Silver In Disguise looks to have plenty more to offer and I am confident he can make a very bold bid to land the hat-trick next time.  Congratulations to his owners John Durston and Nigel Harris!
