ALPHA VICTOR got off the mark over fences yesterday on his second attempt at Sedgefield in the 3m 3f Novice Chase under Peter Buchanan for owners DENTON, KINSEY, FIFIELD and WESLEY-YATES. They have been very patient as Victor has had a few problems which led to him refusing on his first attempt over fences at Doncaster last season. With a lot of hard work, time and effort from all of the team at Peel to try and get his confidence back over the larger obstacles we were delighted to see it pay off yesterday. He jumped fantastically well as we knew he could and hopefully he will gain some confidence from the win and go on to have a successful novice chase campaign for the remainder of the season.
