I've run my 2 y olds 3 miles. What's interesting is that the best workouttimes are made by https://www.simhorseracing.com/horse.ph ... ID=1546670 and https://www.simhorseracing.com/horse.ph ... ID=1527904. They are both chase allowance with wrong equipment. In 7:th place comes https://www.simhorseracing.com/horse.ph ... ID=1545423, who is a chase freak where I have picked out equipment (I think it's the right equipment anyway).

This make me a bit suspicious. The best times are made by horses with a little bit dual capacity: Kementari, Country House, Altior. Could it still be mainly the flat ability that shows in the Steeplechase-workouts? I thought it was supposed to be the steeplechase-ability?

They will be horses that have a better flat gallop eg Solid or productive rather than claimer or dc. The workouts have nothing to do with chase ability

Without running chasers, I had - like Flizan - understood that chaser workouts would now mirror chasing ability and not flat ability:

For the first time ever, steeplechasers have been given their own brand new workouts with real distances, all over fences! The options for flat workouts have disappeared for them. Woohoo!
