That was a Listed mares’ race and she was approach too good for the opposition. This return to hurdles poses a unique check however she is unexposed over 3m.
Tradition De Sivola seemed good when beating Molly Childers at Kempton over Christmas. The favorite ran a shocker that day however the runner-up has since gained a chase so the shape does add up.
She is badly off with Magic Of Mild on official scores however it’s arduous to assume she’s stopped enhancing.
If You Say Run completed forward of Tradition De Sivola once they crammed the locations behind Mia’s Storm at Kempton in November.

Jester Jet has to provide weight away. She’s proven promise in chases this season and she has all the time formed like she would come into her personal over 3m.
Petticoat Tails has come up towards helpful Sensulano on her final two begins. She’s one other who can be higher off if this was a handicap.
COME DINE WITH ME Your in-depth preview to Saturday’s Peter Marsh Chase at Haydock
PROMISING novice SEDDON ought to reap the benefits of a tasty score on his handicap debut.
He wasn’t disgraced within the Champion Bumper eventually yr’s Cheltenham Pageant and he was profitable on his hurdles debut at Stratford on his comeback run.
There was lots to love about his third behind Grade 1 winner Elixir De Nutz contemplating he had been held up in a slowly-run race.
That type is robust and he was additionally hit the body in a scorching novice contest behind prime prospect Angels Breath over 2m at Ascot final month.
Each these races had hurdles taken out and that wasn’t ideally suited for a sound jumper. He clearly needs in the present day’s additional three furlongs and I’m satisfied he’s nicely weighted at present.

He’s acquired in in the direction of the foot of the weights and is clearly harmful for shrewd coach Charles Byrnes.

Mr Medic can bounce again to profitable methods after a nasty blunder value him final time
MR MEDIC is simply what the physician ordered. He gained at this monitor final season and he was once more profitable on his return over immediately’s course and distance when seeing off Flying Angel in November.
His sixth behind Frodon within the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup is perhaps thought-about somewhat disappointing however he was proper within the thick of it till almost blundering away James Greatest 4 fences from residence.
Again at his favorite monitor he seems to be to have an awesome probability.
Mister Whitaker went off favorite for the BetVictor Gold Cup at Cheltenham in November however he by no means actually threatened. He seems prepared for the step as much as 3m to me.
Benatar twice gained at this course final season and he put in a strong effort behind Valtor over 3m final outing. That journey simply stretches him and he appears harmful at present.
Joyful Diva chased house in-form Aso at Cheltenham on New Yr’s Day. That was a high quality efficiency from a constant horse. Anticipate one other good run right now.
Altior might be a ridiculous worth – so simply sit again and watch
TRUE champions don’t come alongside fairly often. It gained’t be value backing ALTIOR however that doesn’t make the prospect of watching him win the Matchbook Clarence Home Chase a lot much less engaging.
He’s superior and all the things I like in a racehorse. Some may salivate over the brilliance of a Sprinter Sacre however I’ve all the time most popular these horses that robust it out and bludgeon their rivals into the turf with a relentless ending surge.
We’d all like to see greater than three runners in these Grade 1s however the small area gained’t hassle Altior. He’s been right here earlier than many occasions on his option to an astonishing 16 straight victories.
His Tingle Creek defeat of Un De Sceaux final month was nearly as good as any of his earlier wins and he hardly broke sweat to see off Diego Du Charmil within the Desert Orchid over Christmas.
It ought to be one other stroll for Altior as we speak however savour him. Horses like this fella are value watching is any contest.
Fox Norton is more likely to fill the forecast spot. He gained Grade 1s at Aintree and Punchestown a few years in the past however hasn’t had a lot luck since.
Final season – when he was runner-up behind Politilogue within the Tingle Creek earlier than pulling up within the King George – was reduce brief by damage.
It’s onerous to think about he shall be at his greatest for his first run for a yr however his class must be ok to see him end in entrance of Diego Du Charmil.
Mister Fisher scampered clear at Kempton and seems to be set to become a sensible type
MISTER FISHER appears a proper catch within the Sky Guess Supreme Trial. He in all probability shouldn’t have been crushed when touched off on his hurdles debut at Newbury.
His true colors have been on present when he zipped clear to win a scorching contest at Kempton on Boxing Day. The marginally softer floor shouldn’t be an issue as he gained a bumper on simpler going.
Nicky Henderson’s teenager has to offer 3lbs to all his rivals however I’m positive he’s obtained greater than sufficient class to deal with the load distinction.
Shiny Forecast is a stunning horse. He got here with a storming late run to on his debut at Newbury in November.
That race has labored out properly and he had little hassle following up at Leicester over Christmas. I’ve little question he’ll become a sensible horse nevertheless it’s more likely to be over additional.
Idee De Garde ran into a very good ‘un in Henderson’s Champagne Platinum on his hurdles debut at Newcastle.
It’s not exhausting to anticipate him to enhance for that first run since becoming a member of Dan Skelton however he’s thrown into the deep finish somewhat.

GO for Mo in The New One Unibet Hurdle. MOHAAYED gained the County Hurdle finally season’s Cheltenham Pageant and he landed one other useful handicap when profitable at Ascot simply earlier than Christmas when sporting cheekpieces for the primary time.
I can’t think about he gained’t be nearly as good on this a lot smaller subject.
He’s weighted to get rather a lot nearer to Silver Streak when he was fourth behind Evan Williams’ hope within the Welsh Champion Hurdle at Ffos Las in October.
Silver Streak prefers good floor however he does deal with softer. His second behind Mind Energy in Cheltenham’s Worldwide Hurdle was in all probability a private greatest and he appears higher than a handicapper nowadays.
He’s dependable however I’m unsure he’s received as a lot in hand of his rivals because the market suggests.
International Citizen wasn’t at his greatest within the Christmas Hurdle and his earlier win in a Newbury handicap off prime weight was a splendid effort. He’s stylish on his day and appears a live hazard.
Western Ryder is especially constant however he’s held by Silver Streak on final month’s Cheltenham type. He may want a bit additional nowadays so this sharp monitor is unlikely to assist.
Pingshou hasn’t taken to fences. He missed the entire of final season and maybe his issues have caught up with him. His greatest type has additionally come on genuinely good floor.

CALL for the Infantry within the Peter Marsh Chase. I’ve had my eye on RED INFANTRY for some time as he seems a staying chaser going locations.
Ian Williams’ hope rose via the ranks final season with wins at Doncaster and Warwick.
He’s continued that progress this time period. There was quite a bit to love about the best way he floor it out to win over 3m4f at at this time’s monitor in November and he moved like an in-form horse when runner-up at Sandown final month.
I can’t think about the drop in distance shall be an issue and it’d simply go well with him. Few trainers have their secure in nearly as good type as Venetia Williams.
Her Otago Path was miles behind Valtor however which may have come too shortly after his return from almost two years off the monitor. I wouldn’t be in any respect stunned to see him run properly.
Captain Redbeard didn’t seem to benefit from the Grand Nationwide fences within the Grand Sefton final month.
He’s obtained loads of type round this monitor together with when runner-up on this race 12 months in the past and ought to go properly.
