Richard Hobson hoping Allysson Monterg can make belated chase return

Allysson Monterg

Richard Hobson hopes to have Allysson Monterg back in action in the second half of the season.

The seven-year-old was restricted to just one run in a Listed hurdle at Cheltenham last season after sustaining a tendon injury.

He added: "He ran well in the Albert Bartlett the season before last. He made a huge mistake at the top of the hill in that and still managed to finish sixth.

"His only run was in a very competitive Listed race at Cheltenham last season, but he damaged a tendon and we are just working on getting him back.

"We don't want to rush him, but he should have his first run over fences in January. He has got a huge engine."
