1:40 – Coral Handicap Hurdle – North Lodge @ 15/2 (BetVictor, Betfred)

Regardless of being off the observe for 602 days, North Lodge appears to be like like a category above right here. He was final seen being positioned in a Grade One novice hurdle at Aintree, beating the likes of Good Threat At All, Colonel Mustard and Stage Star. With a kind e book like that, there’s a weight of expectation for North Lodge to start out with a win. And with the bottom circumstances just a little firmer than typical, North Lodge ought to relish and outperform this vital drop at school.

That being stated, Get A Tonic offers a extra particular outlook. After experimenting over fences, she’s again to hurdles and racing off an honest mark of 130. A drop of 5 kilos is important and should benefit from the drop again in journey too. Affords comparable worth to North Lodge at 15/2 (William Hill), and has already had a run for the Skelton’s.


Every part Is Underneath Management

2:15 – Gerry Fielden Intermediate H’cap Hurdle (Premier) – Underneath Management @ 13/8 (William Hill, BetVictor)

My BestofBets colleague Ash Symonds has waxed lyrical for the reason that begin of the season about Underneath Management. And I’ve succumbed to agree with him, for this race not less than. 9 wins for Nicky Henderson on this race, reveals how a lot high quality can come out of it. And beating Iberico Lord solely makes an easier process of selecting him because the NAP of the day. Count on him to go off odds-on.

And Our Champ might additionally flip up at a fairly inflated value. He was nicely crushed on comfortable floor final day out, however the floor can be extra to his liking as we speak. Rex Dingle can be hoping for an additional decided efficiency after Dashel Drasher’s slender win yesterday, however he could must accept second with and spectacular winner at the beginning of this season. Every-way claims at 16/1 (BetVictor, BetUK).


Behold, My Genius Plan

2:50 – Coral Gold Cup Handicap Chase (Premier) – Monbeg Genius @ 15/2 (Betfred, Boylesports)

In all probability probably the most bettering horse within the subject, Monbeg Genius has each proper to be up there for this one. Ignore his Ascot run, when he was hampered, and you’ve got a horse worthy profitable any huge handicap.

The primary formline is the Ultima from March, a Grand Nationwide winner and a horse who has crushed the Gold Cup winner twice is one thing price noting. And, preserving it within the household, Minella Missile (Tipped on this web page) received at Cheltenham and is 2 from two.

Floor is not any object, weight is ideal, coach in kind. What might probably go fallacious?

Stolen Silver could appear like one which’s been thrown within the deep finish by the handicapper. However with Ahoy Senor’s addition, the burden he’s carrying appears to be like doable. A win within the Native River at Chepstow assured the actual fact he would simply get the three-mile journey.

While it might look he needs comfortable floor, he’ll go on any. Sam Thomas is an efficient inserting coach and I anticipate he has had Stolen Silver prepared for this tilt. Price having in your aspect at 12/1 (William Hill, Betfred, Boylesports).

And an outsider that might get in these additional locations, Kitty’s Mild. It might not be his time of the season but, however you are feeling together with his chasing mark he has to go for these huge handicaps. He’s weighted favourably for this race, and he’s coming in right here off the again of two underwhelming hurdle runs.

He’s a lot better over the larger obstacles and possesses a lot high quality, he’s laborious to disregard at 20/1 (BetVictor, Betfred, Boylesports).


Chest-Nutz Roasting

3:25 – Jim Joel Memorial Trophy H’cap Chase – Elixir De Nutz @ 11/2 (Normal)

Grasp Chewy has been nicely backed after taking to fences nicely. However Elixir De Nutz displayed the standard of a six-year-old when profitable the Haldon Gold Cup in unbelievable trend. Return to the run in final 12 months’s Sport Spirit and also you’ll see him plugging on when the tempo obtained scorching. Freddie Gingell is again after his huge break at Exeter and might discover some kind for the duo.

The perfect of luck!
