No Panic for Chapple-Hyam

Peter Chapple-Hyam is hoping Don’t Panic proves up to the task when he tackles Listed company in the Doncaster Mile tomorrow.

Peter Chapple-Hyam is hoping Don’t Panic proves up to the task when he tackles Listed company in the Doncaster Mile tomorrow.

The Newmarket trainer believes he has “no option” but to step up in grade with the Fath gelding after the handicapper raised him 12lb following his impressive four-length win in the William Hill Spring Mile at the track last month.

“It’s a big step up, but the handicapper has put him up 12lb so I have no option really,” said Chapple-Hyam.

“But hopefully he’ll be OK. He’s working well, he looks well, so we’ll give it a go.”

Chapple-Hyam also saddles Medicine Path, who will be having his first run since joining his St Gatien team from Eoghan O’Neill’s yard a month ago.

“He works like a good horse, but will improve for the run,” the trainer added.
