Dodging Bullets set for Newbury


?Queen Mother Champion Chase winner Dodging Bullets will make his seasonal reappearance in Saturday's Betfair Exchange Chase at Newbury.

The eight-year-old has not run since landing the two-mile championship at last year's Cheltenham Festival after meeting with a minor setback in his training.

Having missed several intended targets, Paul Nicholls has reported the gelding to be on course to make his return at Newbury.

"He'll run on Saturday in the Game Spirit, he looks absolutely amazing and I am thrilled with him at the moment," said Nicholls.

"Win, lose or draw he'll improve for the run. I don't think I have ever had him quite as fit and as well as I have before for his first run of the season.

"Last year he needed his first run and then he won three Grade Ones, he will have one run and go to Cheltenham at his very best having had just the one run."

Dodging Bullets is one of eight horses entered in the Grade Two contest with Captain Conan, Josses Hill and L'Ami Serge all possibles for Nicky Henderson.

Willow's Saviour could take his chance for Dan Skelton alongside the Paul Henderson-trained Un Beau Roman, while Kerry Lee is double-handed with Top Gamble and Grey Gold.
