Jump City can set record straight for Paul Nicholls at Exeter
Jump City has never quite fulfilled his potential for Paul Nicholls, but nevertheless his bare form is good enough to see him win the Kip Kealey Novices’ Chase at Exeter.
As a novice hurdler he pushed the ill-fated Darlan to half a length at Taunton last January.
Nicholls kept Jump City away from any lofty targets last season, but he did claim a novice hurdle at Newton Abbot in April.
His chasing career started well, with a win over the more-than-useful Double Ross, but he then cut no ice when upped in class next time out.

Jumping right at Cheltenham behind subsequent Arkle third His Excellency, he gave himself no chance.
He was then well beaten at Taunton behind Changing Times, who was also placed at the Festival last week.
Although it was disappointing Jump City went down as an odds-on favourite at Taunton last time out, albeit only by a nose, this still offers a very good opportunity in which to set the record straight.
Roger Charlton runners are a rare sight at Wolverhampton, which makes Sibaya of significant interest in the 32Red.com Maiden Stakes.
This Exceed And Excel filly is a sister to a Grade One winner in Canada and related to several smart sorts.
Sibaya made a satisfactory debut at Lingfield last month.
Charlton is not known as a trainer who has his youngsters rock-hard fit for their first experience but more as one who gradually brings them along.
He had several juveniles last year who improved significantly for their debut and it would be no surprise at all if Sibaya leaves her debut form way behind.
She ran green on her initial run but in the end was only beaten just over a length and will not have to progress greatly to take this prize, despite finishing last of four.
