Kerry Lee might be tempted to run Top Gamble in the John Durkan Memorial Chase at Punchestown on December 11 if there was enough give in the ground.

Top Gamble: Could run in the John Durkan

"I was quite happy with that. The ground wasn't really soft enough but, that said, I think he will have come on for the run," the Presteigne trainer told At The Races.
