Charlie is taking the weekend off, so Chris, Jamie & Rich have you covered..
Newbury – Good to Soft, Good in Places
Doncaster – Good to Soft, Good in Places
Newcastle – Good to Soft
2.05 Betfair Rehearsal Handicap Chase
Aye Right has been a feature in these staying chases, running well more often than not. He was placed in the Ultima off 3lbs higher last spring, and runner-up off this mark in the Sky Bet Chase previously. He had a pipe opener at Kelso last month so shouldn’t be lacking fitness; he looks a great bet at the current prices and will surely give you a run for your money with stamina questions to answer for a few of his rivals.
3.00 Ladbrokes Trophy Handicap Chase
Whilst we remember the glory days of gold Cup horses running here, this years renewal is still a very competitive race. It’s no surprise given recent domination that Irish horses head the betting, and I’m going for the Wilie Mullins trained Ontheropes to land a knockout blow. Runner-up to Monkfish in a Novice chase last term, he won the Munster National a month ago, following the route of Total Recall in 2017. It seems a plan that connections know works and with just 6 chase starts to his name, could well be capable of more improvement, given he was going clear over the bare 3 miles last time out.
1:50 – Ladbrokes Handicap Hurdle – Selection: Master’s Legacy
Philip Hobbs’ Master’s Legacy could be the one to side with in this contest getting the better of an in-form and race fit rival at Chepstow. That was a very similar class 2 race to today and the son of Getaway has only been raised 2lbs in the weights, which must give him an excellent chance of following up today. The step back up to 2m 4f could well bring more improvement from Master’s Legacy and the Hobbs stable are in solid shape at the moment. Any rain that falls won’t concern connections as he has won on soft in the past. I would also give a big each way squeak to Earlofthecotswolds.
2:40 – Living North EBF Maiden Hurdle – Selection: Parisencore
Nearly a dozen horses will line up to contest this 2m Maiden Hurdle and it’s an interesting one. Cool Jet was considered good enough to contest the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham and is a big threat today. However, with a more recent run under his belt Parisencore gets the nod for me. Like quite a few of his rivals today Parisencore remains unexposed and he has the potential to improve further. Softer ground may also suit Parisencore nicely and with a run over hurdles to his name he holds obvious claims. Douglas Talking is another who would softer conditions and is perhaps on the shortlist if you are looking for value in this race.
1.43 Handicap Hurdle – Class 3 -3yo Plus – 2m 128yds
Constanico – Authorized X Senora Galilei 8yo gelding. – NON RUNNER
1 win & 2 places from 7 runs since May 2021. A winner on 3 occasions from today’s mark of 120 ( Oct 2020, June 2019 & Jan 2019) The January win was over C&D, the gelding finished 3rd of 10 in this race last season from a mark of 128. His mark had dropped to 120 by September & has since finished 2nd of 6 & 3rd of 5 from this mark before dropping to 117. His last run was on October 30th at Musselburgh in a Class 4 1m 7f 124yd Handicap Hurdle, winning by 1 length from Sarvi. Has a 5Lb claiming jockey on board today.. Each Way
1.50 – Handicap Hurdle – Class 2 – 4yo Plus – 2m 4f 118yds
Calva D’auge – Air Chief Marshall X Hill ou Elle 6yo gelding.
7 wins & 4 places from 17 runs over hurdles. The gelding has won his last 4 hurdle starts & was a C&D winner in a Class 2 Handicap Hurdle last December. He won at Taunton in April before a break & won on his return last time out at Kempton in a 2m 5f Class 2 Handicap Hurdle by 1 length from Umndeni. Has a 5Lb claimer on board & the pair are 4 from 4 together.. Each Way
