Posted in: Cheltenham Festival News
The Long Walk Hurdle winner has made a flawless start to his chasing career so far, winning both starts over the larger obstacles with something to spare.

Sam Spinner was a three-length winner on his debut over fences in a novice contest at Wetherby in October and then returned to the scene of that victory to post a second success over an increased trip of three miles.
O'Keeffe is now targeting the Grade Two on December 14 with the seven-year-old, with the three-mile RSA Chase at the Cheltenham Festival in March the ultimate target.
"His next target is the Grade Two three-mile novice chase at Doncaster - the December Novices' Chase.
"We'll see how we get on there, but our long-term plan in the RSA Chase at the Festival. All being well, that's the target for the season."
