Leamington target for New
The New One is being primed to return to action in the Neptune Investment Management Leamington Novices' Hurdle at Warwick on January 12.
Winner of five of his six races under Rules, his only defeat came at last year's Cheltenham Festival when sixth behind Champagne Fever in the bumper.
He has made a very impressive start to life over hurdles with two victories to his name, but a minor setback has kept him off the track since October.
"The New One is going to run in the Grade Two novices' hurdle at Warwick on the same day as the Classic Chase," said trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies.
"Everything is fine with him now, it was nothing serious and he's building towards that."
