Plenty to get excited about today.. Aintree, Wincanton, Kelso… AW at Southwell plus Naas in Ireland….
As usual Charlie will lead the way & Rich will have the Final Word…
12.20 – Follow The Bear 4-1 – Has 3 wins and a 2nd place from last 4 starts and comes into this race in great shape. Wins have came over hurdles covering distances of 2m 7f to 3m 1f. Placed 2nd on most recent start in a Class 4 Novice Chase at Worcester beaten 7 lengths by The Hollow Ginge. Will have learned plenty from that race and is taken to go one better today, main threats come in the shape of Nicky Henderson’s other runner Champagne Mystery and Joueur Bresilien trained by R Curtis.
2.05 – Cepage 7-2 -Has a win and a 2nd place from last 3 runs last year, the win came at Kempton over 2m 4f and the 2nd place came at Cheltenham over 2m 5f when last seen in December last year. Makes seasonal return and today’s conditions are suitable, if fully race ready should take this race with main danger coming in the shape of Duke Street and Oldgrangewood.
3.35 – Soupy Soups 14-1 -Has finished 2nd twice and won once from last 3 starts, over distances of 2m 6f and 3m. Had finished 2nd at Perth over 3m on the 9th September beaten 2 and 1/4 lengths by Almafi Doug. Returned to Perth on the 25th September and won over 3m beating Graineyhill by 8 lengths. More recently was a 3 and 1/2 length 2nd to Mellow Ben at Fontwell over 2m 5f and 135y. Has gone up 5lbs for that performance and should be in the thick of it come business end of race. Main dangers come in the shape of Last year’s winner Present Man who is going for a hat-trick of wins in this race and The Young Master who seems to have found some form since pulling up at Newbury in December 2018.
Well that’s my thoughts on today’s selections, good luck if following and please remember to keep stake small so it doesn’t hurt your pocket, I will now hand you over to Rich for the Final Word.
