Sir Ivan gained his second consecutive success over fences at Uttoxeter on Thursday despite giving his jockey Noel Fehily quite a hard time by tanking through much of the race.

To win a Class 3 novice handicap chase as he did by two lengths from Robin Of Locksley was a good performance given how hard he pulled from the moment the tapes rose.

Having not won for over two years until May he is getting the hang of things and while the conditions of the race suited him it was great to see him triumph again after his summer break.

Sir Ivan is pretty versatile and hopefully will not be quite as strong next time, so will be able keep a bit more up his sleeve for the end of the race.

We don't have any firm plans for him and imagine he will mix and match between novice races and handicaps.
