BLACK OP (IRE) did well to finish a close third in the Betbright Dipper Novices’ Chase at Cheltenham on Tuesday after a catalogue of jumping errors. Following discussions with his owner Roger Brookhouse, Noel Fehily and jumping expert Yogi Breisner we have decided that he should revert back to hurdles for the remainder of the season. Yogi, who has had a couple of sessions with him recently, would like to have him for a spell over the summer months to do some extensive schooling before a decision is made regarding his chasing career. He is likely to make his reappearance back over the smaller obstacles in the Cleeve Hurdle at Cheltenham later this month.
