Horse Racing – De Bromhead wants more from Petit Mouchoir

Henry De Bromhead admits that Petit Mouchoir will have to step things up if he is to win next month's Racing Post Arkle at Cheltenham. Petit Mouchoir finished second to Footpad, 10/11 with bet365 to win the Arkle, in the Frank Ward Solicitors Arkle Novice Chase at the Dublin Racing Festival earlier this month. However, De Bromhead is confident that the run at Leopardstown will bring his charge on. The trainer told At The Races: "Whether he'll improve enough to beat Footpad, who was hugely impressive on the day and has been all season, I don't know. But I think we should definitely come on for the run." Petit Mouchoir is 9/2 to win the Arkle on 13th March.
