Stylish Success for Ivan
Sir Ivan got off the mark over fences with a welcome victory in the Beginners' Chase at Ffos Las on Tuesday.
A good horse with a fair amount of ability he has not helped himself by silly mistakes that have cost him dear in the past.
But he looks to be getting the hang of things now after beating Cole Harden in fine style on Tuesday.
His jumping was excellent in the main though he did make a couple of mistakes without ever looking like falling.
With the ground firming up Sir Ivan is unlikely to run again this summer.
The good thing is that he remains a novice for almost twelve months and could start to make up for lost time in the autumn.
A keen type who tends to take his jockeys on he seemed better suited by having a decent lead from Cole Harden at Ffos Las.
