Andrew Lynch says Zabana won’t “waste any more time over hurdles” and is set to make a chasing debut in December.
Zabana came in second in the Coral Cup at Cheltenham in March before finishing third behind behind Jezki in the Ladbrokes World Series Hurdle at the Punchestown Festival.
Lynch says his charge is now ready to start over fences and he has his sights set on a run out at Leopardstown in December; something you can back using this Bet365 bonus code.
“You’ll see him at Leopardstown in a beginners’ chase on December 28,” the trainer is quoted as saying by Sporting Life.
“We decided to go chasing rather than waste any more time over hurdles.
“He had a little setback which cost us about four to six weeks, but everything is rosy now.
“He’s a very exciting prospect. Davy Russell came in to school him the other day and he was absolutely thrilled with him.”
