Champion chaser set for return.

Last seasons champion chaser Dodging Bullets is set for return this weekend in the Game Spirit chase at Newbury.

A splint injury has so far kept the horse from running this season but it looks as if all is well now and he returns in a competitive event with some good opponents.

He will have to be ready to be competitive in this race with the two good horses from Nicky Henderson’s yard, Captain Conan and the accomplished L’Ami Serge both likely to line up.

Trainer Paul Nicholls will have the horse fit enough to do himself justice on Saturday and whilst he may be expecting a big run it would be great to get him “race fit” with the festival just 4 weeks away.

"I don't think we've ever had him as fit and well going into his first run of the season," Stated the trainer.
