It’s a busy evening so just the selections for tomorrow.
13:45 Pertemps Hurdle – Grade 3 – 2m 4f
A predictable wide open race and I’ll just about side with Wilde About Oscar* (17/2).
14:20 Top Novices’ Hurdle – Grade 1 – 2m 103y
I’m willing to take another (or is it third?) chance with Third Time Lucki* (7/2).
14:50 Mildmay Novices’ Chase – Grade 1 – 3m 210y
Chantry House*** (7/4) should be well suited by the step up in trip to 3m after an impressive win in the Marsh at Cheltenham.
15:25 Melling Chase – Grade 1 – 2m 3f 200y
I’m hoping that Fakir D’oudairies*** (3/1) will do one better after following home the imperious Allaho in the Ryanair.
16:05 Topham Chase – Grade 3- 2m 5f 19y (National course)
Visioman** (8/1) has long been targeted for this although he is facing tough opposition. The top combination of Rachael Blackmore and Henry de Bromhead will hopefully add this to their impressive tally.
16:40 Sefton Novices’ Hurdle – Grade 1 – 3m 149y
Bravemansgame should win this after a decent third in the Ballymore but I’m siding with the fifth in the Albert Bartlett, Alaphilippe* at a very attractive 18/1 (e/w).
17:15 Pinsent Masons Conditionals’ and Amateurs’ Hurdle – 2m 103y
A bit of a lottery as usual and I’ll watch out for any market movers. However, for now, I’m inclined towards Leoncavallo* (10/1) who was a decent sixth in the Martin Pipe, the equivalent race at Cheltenham and could well improve.
