Ortenzia has proved frustrating as she has struggled with her breathing since joining us last year. She has plenty of ability and has shown snippets of form, however she mentally struggles with fast run races. She has always jumped well and fences allow her more time to think and breath. She benefited from the slight step up in trip and the slowly run pace of the race.
Ortenzia, who was making her handicap debut, stays on strongly to win the Malise Nicolson Novices' Handicap Chase under Jonathan Burke. ?? pic.twitter.com/ibOmEEfSSl— Bangor-on-Dee (@BangorRaces) October 3, 2018
