Mick says
Mick's view:

Mister Fisher looks like my idea of the winner of the Marsh Novices’ Chase. I have been very taken by this horse this year and he was very good when he won the Lightning Novices’ at Doncaster from Al Dancer.

I have seen him in the flesh and this horse has grown physically and that was holding him back last year. He has really strengthened up and is a big horse.

He has looked the real deal this year and has a lot of pace and I think just stepping up will help him. There is talk of the Arkle as he is a very good work horse but he is a real giant and I think the longer trip will be more in tune with his capabilities.

He is also a very good jumper and typical of one of Nicky’s horses, in he is improving as he matures.

The Bottom Line

Strong Suit
“He looks better this year and is a physically stronger horse.”
Weak Spot
“He was disappointing in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle last season.”
