Tom Lacey may move Kateson up in trip for the Albert Bartlett River Don Novices’ Hurdle at Doncaster.

The Herefordshire trainer has earmarked the extended three-mile Grade Two race on January 26 as a possible target for the six-year-old, after his unbeaten run over hurdles came to an end in last month’s Challow Hurdle at Newbury.

Lacey said: “I thought that was a fantastic run from Kateson in the Challow – I was very pleased with him.

“We might look at going for the River Don at Doncaster. That looks like the obvious target, although it would have to be soft ground for him to run.

“He is in great nick and has come out of the race at Newbury really well.”
