Select a Gallops Report date:

Nigel Twiston-Davies has been delighted at the way THE NEW ONE come out of his recent effortless Ascot triumph.

The gelding's jumping looked inch perfect as he put lesser rivals to the sword.

His next outing will be a spin round Cheltenham, with his trainer not against then bringing him out again for a crack at Kempton's Christmas Hurdle.

Twiston-Davies will field a number on interesting runners next week, with FOXBRIDGE possible for Leicester on Monday.

The gelding is amongst a handful of handicap chasers the yard will bring back and the way he has worked on the steep Fibresand gallop suggests he will lack for little in the fitness department.

TOUR DES CHAMPS be in the group and has been showing all the right signals.

ARTHUR'S SECRET plenty of ability and could better a sequence of near-misses at Newbury on Saturday.

He is a very good traveller and jumper.

RANSOM NOTE promise when last seen, and though not without his problems, looks ready for a return in novice hurdle company soon.

TONY STAR not run since May, but Philip Hobbs' gelding moved purposefully up the main woodchip facility, looking in good order for an impending return to the track.

FILBERT a spark of ability when just out of the money at Sandown and is ready to run again before the end of the month, having worked enthusiastically.

VAL D'ARC beaten when falling at Market Rasen, but has the ability to bounce back following some intensive schooling.

Lambourn, November 27

HADRIAN'S APPROACH benefited from some schooling ahead of his return to action.

The Bet365 Gold Cup hero has been known to shut his eyes at the odd fence, but with his own jumping style he's done connections proud.

Other highs on his CV two other chases and a third in the RSA at Cheltenham.

The manner of his recent work suggests he is tuned-up and ready to return to the fray in one of the marquee chases in the coming weeks.

HAMMERSLY LAKE going down the handicap hurdle route and looked a shade unlucky not to score at Cheltenham's Showcase fixture.

He seems to have put behind him a crunching fall at Ascot, and can convert his useful French form to English soil.

OUT SAM skipped a few entries but reappears at Newbury on Friday.

The Multiplex gelding showed promise in point-to-points and will go straight down the novice hurdle route.

He works well and is expected to more than pay his way through the winter.

DIFFERENT GRAVEY an endearing name, having arrived at Seven Barrows from Ireland.

He was impressive landing his only point, and has both worked and schooled well.

ANQUETTA none the worse for an uncharacteristic fall last time and will soon seek compensation, while FRENCH OPERA primed for action after a pleasing midweek spin.

Midlands, November 26

LISTEN BOY the eye in his latest stretch up the Fibresand gallop as Nigel Twiston-Davies readied his weekend runners at Naunton.

The eight-year-old Presenting gelding brought off an extraordinary feat on his return to the fray on October 31.

His clear-cut triumph that day at Uttoxeter came exactly one year after his previous outing, and that resulted in another success at Stratford.

With few miles on the clock, Listen Boy looks well worth following should he remain sound.

A DOLL IN MILAN set to run at Newbury and she grabbed the ground like you might expect from a bang-in-form mare.

The daughter of Milan won doing handstands at Lingfield and should be worth following in the colours of part-owner Simon Munir.

ARTHUR'S SECRET running into one and wasn't disgraced against a top-notcher last time.

He showed his usual sparkle in his journey up the strip to suggest he can go well in whichever of his entries connections choose to aim him at.

FRONTIER VIC fresh and well and moved purposefully ahead of a possible run in a handicap hurdle at Doncaster.

ROSSONERI from a lengthy absence tomorrow and after breezing nicely this morning, he should be fit enough to go well in a novices' handicap hurdle at Newbury.

Minehead, November 25

FINGAL BAY his position at the forefront of the Hennessy Gold Cup market with a pleasing weekend spin on the all-weather complex at Sandhills Stables.

The eight-year-old is a fascinating contender for Newbury's marquee jumps prize, with his ability to deliver fresh a possible trump card.

Fingal Bay, who won the Pertemps Final at the Cheltenham Festival, has excelled in his schooling at home.

Ground conditions and the track are also likely to suit.

Hobbs will saddle an abundance of handicap chasers this week.

TONY STAR the look of a fairly-treated chaser and can build upon a promising comeback effort.

He has worked as if that run has brought him forward, and is entered in races at Newbury where he will be getting plenty of weight from his main rivals.

CARRIGMORNA KING on his own reappearance and worked well up the steep woodchip gallop.

He looks in the mood to cope with a rise in the ratings, having enjoyed himself in the interim.

This discipline was also afforded to ROYAL REGATTA FILBERT, could both run at the Hennessy meeting.
