Four To Follow: Back To Normal

After final week’s washout, racing’s again with a bang at Warwick and Kempton. Huge handicap motion, plus an perception into the Brown Advisory Chase at Warwick and the Ryanair image at Kempton. It’s a busy day, so 4 To Comply with is right here to assist for the large races.

2:24 – Hampton Novices’ Chase (Grade Two) – Apple Away @ 9/4 (BetVictor, Boylesports)

Regardless of 5 runners, it’s an interesting renewal for the longer term staying chasers. Apple Away appears to have her manner on the smooth floor, as she relished final trip when successful for the primary time over fences. She’s as much as three miles this time, which is able to go well with her higher than the journey within the commencement chase gained by Gray Dawning, who she faces in the present day.

Gray Dawning appeared to go well with the two-and-half-mile journey higher and Broadway Boy not has the luxurious of Cheltenham to assist him.


Again To Port

3:00 – Basic Handicap Chase (Premier) – Beauport @ 10/1 (William Hill)

Within the mud and the rain, Truckers Lodge was a deserved winner of the London Nationwide at Sandown, however in behind Beauport confirmed luggage of potential. If not for pecking on touchdown on the second final, the successful margin might have been loads shorter. Regardless of not having gained at this marathon distance, Beauport has loads of expertise. Mushy floor might make it simpler for him and the Twiston-Davies group are the highest strikers at Warwick this season.

Fontaine Collonges had a simple day trip in entrance within the Rowland Meyrick on Boxing Day. She had her circumstances, and none of her rivals might lay a glove. For that she’s been raised a steep seven kilos. However lately, these excessive within the weights have discovered a method to sneak into the highest 4, and Venetia Williams’ mud lover shouldn’t have an issue at 17/2 (Basic).

Laura Morgan’s Percussion has been discovered over the Nationwide fences at Aintree lately. Positioned twice, you’d suppose this may be a prep race for the nine-year-old. He has to seek out one thing to get in, and he has a combating likelihood on the smooth floor. There’s no query both concerning the journey, though he was racing within the slop final trip within the Becher Chase. 14/1 (BetVictor) is nice each-way value.



Bridge Over Standing Water

2:07 – Silviniaco Conti Chase (Grade Two) – Banbridge @ 5/2 (William Hill)

I’ve missed Banbridge. One in all my favorite horses in coaching is again and needs to be firing. He’s acquired his floor after lacking the 2023 Turners’ Novice Chase attributable to smooth floor, and it appears Kempton has been unaffected by the deluges we’ve had.

Three Grade One winners go face to face, however I’ve doubts about Edwardstone. May the step up in journey come too late in his profession? Pic D’Orhy demolished a poor discipline final yr and this will probably be a a lot stiffer job. Don’t low cost Notlongtillmay. Second within the Turners’, he has type from the November Gold Cup to go on and could also be price a reverse forecast with Banbridge.


Imposing Determine

2:42 – Lanzarote Hurdle – Impose Toi @ 100/30 (Betfred, Boylesports, BetUK)

The Lanzarote shouldn’t be one among my favorite handicaps of the season, however this yr appears a good sufficient renewal. Impose Toi was solely overwhelmed by a neck at Ascot earlier than Christmas and solely receives three kilos for it. It doesn’t put him on the prime of the handicap and James Bowen, now the Henderson primary, comes over to take the journey as a substitute of the choice of Warwick.

Good Luck Allure raced a blinder at Cheltenham to complete third in a Mares’ Handicap Hurdle final trip. Again to in the present day, she has a claimer on board which can show to be a masterstroke by the coach, Anthony Honeyball. She prefers give within the floor, which she’s acquired, and the market could also be overlooking her at 12/1 (William Hill, Betfred).

Mothill comes into the race on a hattrick bid. Neil Mulholland’s horse is up two courses, which is normally a flip off, however he’s racing of his final successful mark now with a claimer aboard. He’s dominated his final two races, within the ultimate phases, and should spring a shock at 16/1 (Betfred, Boylesports, BetUK).

The easiest of luck!
