Broad back with a bang19th November 2012
Broadbackbob made a pleasing debut over fences with a comfortable success in the Wings For Life UK Novices' Chase at Plumpton.
The Nicky Henderson-trained gelding put in a foot-perfect round under Barry Geraghty to take this two-and-a-half-mile heat on his first start since January.
Geraghty kept the 30-100 shot to the outside to get a clear view of the obstacles and try to avoid any trouble. It paid off as early as the first fence where Aikideau came down as Arbeo, Ballypatrick and Sherreb cut out the pace-setting duties.
