Chantry House defied a penalty to bounce back to winning ways, producing an impressive performance to land a Novices’ Chase at Wetherby.

Last year’s Supreme third made easy work of useful sort Coconut Splash to win by 3 lengths and make it two victories in three runs since switching to fences.

Nicky Henderson’s prospect has now seen his price from the Festival Plate Handicap Chase cut from 9/1 to 7/1, while he has trimmed from 25/1 to 16/1 for the Marsh Novices’ Chase.

Ballybegg strengthened his case for a Festival ticket in the opener at the West Yorkshire course, as he claimed his second win in three starts over hurdles.

Trainer Kerry Lee will consider running Wetherby winner Ballybegg in the Ballymore if the ground is in his favour

The six-year-old made all and pulled all out the stops to hold off the late challenging Papa Tango Charly, winning by just a head.

Currently a 66/1 shot for the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle, trainer Kerry Lee stated on the matter that she will need to ‘have a serious think about (the Ballymore)’ and ‘if there’s cut in the ground then we’ll have to have a look.’
