Quality jumper Monarch Chimes will return to the Cambridge stable of his trainers David and Emma-Lee Browne after spelling since his unplaced run in the Gr.3 New Zealand Cup (3200m).
The grey gelding put in a solid showing at the Warrnambool carnival earlier this year and he is earmarked to make a return for the jumping features next year.
The seven-year-old son of Shinko King placed in the Brierly Steeplachase (3450m), before finishing fourth in the Grand National Steeplechase (4500m).
“He is just out spelling,” Emma-Lee Browne said. “He comes back in on Boxing Day, that will be six weeks off for him.
“Then we are right back into it, heading towards Warrnambool.”
