Chivers (Duke Of Marmalade X Thara) had tried his luck over hurdles in 2017. Returning to his favourite 1m 6f he recorded two quick wins during the past week at Salisbury and Goodwood. These victories added a further Stg. £10,000 to his all time winnings. At Goodwood on Saturday he tracked the leaders until 2f out and then took over, winning by a comfortable two and a half lengths. He may get his hat trick if he can stay ahead of the handicapper in the weeks ahead.
