15:40 – Katpoli

This looks competitive for this class three level, with five of the nine runners having won in the last six weeks. Still, they all need to up their game to go into the winner’s enclosure again and I am happy to give a chance to KATPOLI now that the handicapper has relented his grip on the seven-year-old.

Rated as high as 134 when seeing off High Hawk in a class two event two years ago, wind surgery followed by a 430-day spell on the sidelines, saw his mark only fall to 133, but now two runs later, the selection finds himself off a rating of just 124! That is hardly surprising when he you see he was beaten 21 lengths and 13 lengths on each of his last two starts. However, that latest run at Haydock Park last month wasn’t without promise and he could take another step back in the right direction here.

    16:15 – Storm Arising

    There are some promising young chasers in this field with the Henderson pair Patroclus (up in grade) and Bothwell Bridge respected. However, with the trainer entering both it smacks of he is not sure which is his best chance and his big training rival, Mr Nicholls, may be able to see him off with just the one entry in STORM ARISING.

    Rated as high as 140 over hurdles at the beginning of last year when he landed a class two handicap at Chepstow he then found the ground way too quick for him in the Pertemps Final at the Cheltenham Festival.

    A combination of running too freely and the Nicholls’ horses being out of form saw him run flat on his chasing debut at Chepstow behind the smart Pat’s Fancy. However, the handicapper has been very kind in dropping him from an opening 137 to 132 here and he looks a solid play on ground that suits.
