Dan Skelton is looking to win one of the feature races at his local track with the classy North Hill Harvey.
Last seen finishing second in the Grade One Henry VIII Novices’ Chase at Sandown, he has the Kingmaker Novices’ Chase at Warwick next on his agenda.
Skelton trains at Alcester, in Warwickshire, and the Grade Two on February 10 is one of the major heats through the season at the Midlands venue.
“He’s fine, we’re looking at the Kingmaker for him,” said Skelton.
“After that, all being well, it will be the Arkle.”
The Henry VIII was a first defeat over fences for North Hill Harvey after he won twice at Cheltenham earlier in the season.
