Hills is alive with sound of fences
DAVID Bridgwater is optimistic the extraordinary Blue Hills can strike yet again.
The 106-race veteran has enjoyed a new lease of life since joining Bridgwater's Wyck Hill stable near Stow-on-the-Wold after a spell running in point-to-points.
He had been pulled up in his previous two chases before linking up with Bridgwater, having run mostly on the Flat.
But since becoming a stablemate of Cheltenham Gold Cup runner-up The Giant Bolster, the 11-year-old has defied a rise in the handicap to win three of his six races over fences.

Bridgwater said: "He came here as a bit of a chance, just to see what happened really, and he's done brilliantly.
"He doesn't get two miles on the Flat or three miles pointing.
"But he's a moderate two-mile chaser and there are plenty of moderate two-mile chases about.
"He's 11 now, so you never know, but I think he might win another one."
Blue Hills has entries at Worcester on Saturday and Sunday and at Newton Abbot on Monday.
Meanwhile, Bridgwater described The Giant Bolster as "looking brilliant" on his summer break.
The seven-year-old could make his seasonal debut in the Betfair Chase at Haydock on November 24.
