The Betway ambassador picks out three horses to watch from Saturday's racing at Wincanton, including…
I’m actually trying ahead to Navan on Sunday, it’s such a disgrace that we are able to’t go as this race day is all the time blinding.
With Noel Meade’s horses nonetheless going nice weapons, I’m hoping his Jesse Evans goes properly within the Grade 3 Novice Hurdle (12:30). He’s searching for a hat-trick of wins on this sphere and had a very good second in a maiden a few weeks in the past, which might have put him spot on for this.
It’s a aggressive race, because it typically is, particularly with Gordon Elliott’s horse Eskylane within the race.
The Fortria Chase (14:10) needs to be fairly simple to resolve. A Plus Tard goes to take all the beating and as he’s solely six, he’ll have loads of enchancment in him this 12 months. He may find yourself being an actual contender for the Betway Queen Mom Champion Chase come March.
The Troytown Chase (13:35) has been received by some superb horses through the years and that is one other good version of the race.
Scoir Mear was a very good winner at Wexford final day trip, he jumped and travelled fantastically and will have been known as the winner from means out. If he comes right here in that form of kind, he’ll be robust to beat. Simon Torrens, who’s a category younger jockey, takes off a really worthwhile 5lb too.
The Lismullen Hurdle (13:00) is usually the place to begin for among the greatest staying hurdlers of the season. Some nice names have it received it through the years, together with Apple’s Jade for Gordon Elliott in 2017 and 2018.
Gordon saddles Sire Du Berlais on this 12 months’s race and, on rankings, he’s the one to beat. He’s received the Pertemps Closing at Cheltenham for the previous two years and that is his time to see whether or not he can step as much as Graded degree. Whereas that is solely over 2m 4f, you’ll see loads of enchancment from all of them as all of them step up in journey once more after this.
