The fifth and final horse of Mark's Five To Follow is an exciting chase prospect for trainer Nicky Richards.

ON A PROMISE

Nicky Richards/Straightline Bloodstock (6yo g, Definite Article/Silvers Promise)

This grey gelding (a half-brother to the 2m5f hurdle/chase winner Lily Little Legs) made a relatively slow start to his racing career, but given his physical appearance (fine stamp of a horse - a real chaser in the making) this was probably to be expected. However, after getting to grips with racing and winning minor novice handicap and handicap hurdles at Wetherby (2m5f+), Hexham (2m7f+) and Market Rasen (2m7f), his handicap mark rose from 91 to 110.

Evidently not troubled by soft ground whatsoever, this €30,000 purchase (Tattersalls Ireland - August 2015) should continue to blossom over fences for a trainer known for a patient approach, and with a fine record over time with his staying handicap chasers.

On A Promise has the scope and size to jump fluently around almost any track in the country (left or right handed), and despite being dismounted after crossing the line at Market Rasen, that was only a precautionary measure (minor knock). He wouldn’t look out of place in competitive Saturday winter handicap chases at the likes of Haydock or Doncaster, and is a potentially smart prospect.
