Harry Cobden delighted as Stage Star wins Turners Novices’ Chase: “It’s beautiful Matt, it’s lovely”

Stage Star has won the first race of day three as trainer Paul Nicholls claimed his first win since 2019.

Jockey Harry Cobden was over the moon after he ended a 4-year winless period: “I rode my first winner at 18, the next one came fairly soon, then a four year drought so it’s great to get back.

“The owners are spending more and more money every year and we’re getting a great team together”

Although Stage Star had 15/2 odds, they managed to cause an upset and trainer Paul Nicholls was relieved to win after a disappointing day yesterday: “It’s been a tough week so far, we were getting unlucky yesterday with a couple of them. But that was brilliant.

“It’s good for everyone at home, brilliant for Harry”

The next race is the 14:10 Pertemps Handicap Hurdle.
