The Wallace Line who was a high class juvenile hurdler and boasts GRADE 1 form with Bristol De Mai, Baron Alco and Karezak will go chasing in October.
Karezak finished fourth to Thistlecrack, both Bristol De Mai and Baron Alco have gone on to be top class chaser s with Bristol De Mai finishing seventh the Cheltenham Gold Cup rated 160 and Barco Alco who finished second at this year’s festival is rated 148.
The Wallace Line was always going to be a better chasing with his attributes being slick jumping and the ability to stay exceptionally well.
Over hurdles we have limited to mainly 3 miles’ events and this sort of trip would be the bare minimum for Wally. This was highlighted on his final run of the season at Cheltenham over 3 miles when he flew up the hill finishing third beaten just a length, any further and we would have been celebrating victory.
Being able to run over 3m 4f plus when chasing will really play to all of Wally strengthens and Tim Vaughan rates him a very exciting prospect to the novice chasing ranks.
