Haul Us In seems to have improved for her year off as she powered away to win the mares novice handicap chase at Uttoxeter this afternoon. On her favoured heavy ground, she showed the efficacy of the schooling here at home and as she jumped competently under a measured ride from Stephen. It was a super win for Karenina and Julian Morrison Bell and Haul Us In's fifth win under rules. If she continues to improve she could be a super long distance chaser, especially with Welsh National winner Jock's Cross in her pedigree.
Haul Us In is pictured above in the red colours.
Charmix put in a good round of jumping too, but the top weight in the heavy ground was a bit much for him, although his fourth place was creditable. He has a nice veterans series to aim at.
