Harden vanquished at Ffos Las

Cole Harden: Not at his best since switching to fences

Cole Harden was beaten for a second time when switched to fences as Sir Ivan took his scalp in the Weatherbys General Stud Book Online Beginners' Chase at Ffos Las.

The 2015 Stayers' Hurdle winner was beaten on his only previous start over fences at Wetherby in December before reverting to the smaller obstacles for the rest of the season.

Sent off the 4/7 favourite, Cole Harden attempted to make all of the running over the three miles but Sir Ivan (2-1) never let him out of his sight.

Harry Fry's charge, who had only completed in two of his five previous attempts over fences, made a couple of mistakes but stuck to his guns.

Pushed into the lead by Noel Fehily after jumping the third-last, Sir Ivan got home a length and a quarter ahead of Cole Harden, with the other two runners well beaten.
