Harry Classic bid in limboHeadlines
Restless Harry

Trainer Robin Dickin is in no rush to commit Restless Harry to Saturday's Betfred Classic Chase at Warwick.

The nine-year-old, who returned to winning form over fences at Newbury in December, also holds an entry in a novices' chase on the same card.

"I've not decided where he'll run yet. I need to sit down with his owner and discuss his options. It will have a bearing what the Tizzards decide to do (with Hey Big Spender)," said the handler.

"Not that I'd be running scared of him. He's a very good horse on his day, it would just mean we'd have to carry more weight if he didn't run. We don't have to decide yet and I'll probably leave a decision until declaration time."

Early indications from the Tizzard camp are that Hey Big Spender will run.

Joe Tizzard, son and jockey to trainer Colin, told his Wincanton racecourse blog: "This Saturday I'll be riding Hey Big Spender in the feature race at Warwick. He won the race last year and has needed a couple of runs to find himself this season. He's coming right and I'm looking forward to Saturday."

Ikorodu Road's participation is also up in the air, however. Winner of a valuable prize at Newbury last year, he has now dropped to a mark only 4lb higher. However, his trainer Matt Sheppard is worried the ground may be too soft.

He told At The Races: "He's got an entry for Warwick but it's only 50-50 - we may think it's too soft, so we'll leave it late. After that it could be the Sky Bet Chase (Doncaster), although he's better over three and a quarter miles plus."
