Sun Racing ambassador Sam Twiston-Davies recaps last week's success and talks Welsh Champion Hurdle in his latest column

The jumps season got off to a flyer at Chepstow last weekend as old Ballyoptic won the big handicap chase.

He has been a legend for the yard and he jumped and travelled all over them.

It has been a little while since he last won, so it was great to do it in a nice race for the owners, and thankfully the handicapper hasn’t been too hard on him.

I was impressed with one of Nige’s at Hereford on Wednesday, too.

Don’t Shout had learnt a lot from his hurdles debut at Perth as his jumping was slick and he travelled away great.

He appreciated the step up to 2m4f under positive tactics and he beat a nice one of Tom Lacey’s, so we are hopeful he is a horse who can keep on progressing and win a good race.
