Aux Le Bahnn win keeps him on Festival trail

Noel Chance: keen to avoid Diamond Harry with Aux Le Bahnn

  PICTURE: Martin Lynch  

AUX LE BAHNN remained on course for the Cheltenham Festival after completing a hat-trick in the Nigel Collison Fuels novices' hurdle at Folkestone on Friday.

Trained by Noel Chance and giving at least 7lbs to his rivals, he needed to be firmly pushed out by Richard Johnson to win by two and three quarter lengths.

Chance offered the Coral Cup or the Ballymore Novices' Hurdle as the eight-year-olds possible Festival targets.

He said: "He did it nicely but you'd expect him to do that. I don't want to take on Diamond Harry yet so he could go to the River Don at Doncaster [on January 24].

"He's always worked like a good horse so fingers crossed."
