Tom George eyes Kempton again for Clondaw Castle

Wed 8 Dec 2021

Clondaw Castle is to miss the worst of the winter and could return to action in the Close Brothers Handicap Chase at Kempton at the end of February.

The nine-year-old landed the three-mile prize last season and a repeat bid this season is likely to be the aim.

Trainer Tom George is giving his seven-time winner time to recover from a tough race in the Betfair Chase at Haydock where he was a distant fourth behind A Plus Tard.

“We’re giving him a quieter time now," said George.

"Three miles and one furlong at Grade One level on slightly soft ground stretched his stamina a bit, so we’ll probably wait for the spring with him now.

“He struggles on deeper ground, especially over three-miles-one, so he’s having a quiet time.

“We’ll probably look at the big chase at Kempton he won last year.”
