14:20 Kempton Park – McFabulous (win)
If there clearly was a battle that has been tailor-made for a horse that is specific it would be the Relkeel Hurdle (2m5f) (usually run at Cheltenham), only run around Kempton.
With Cheltenham having to abandon their New Year’s Day fixture, the race has been re-scheduled to run here and the connections of McFabulous must be loving it.
He was an course-and-distance that is exceptional only at the rear end of final period, even though being in a much weaker competition than that one.
He won the Persian War on their regular first in 2010 before good 3rd in a Grade 1 at Newbury time that is last where he was outstayed and perhaps slightly outclassed for his relative inexperience.
This drop in trip and class can see him get his head back in front and can keep his trainer and owner dreaming of future prizes that are big
13:05 Lingfield Park – United Front (each-way)
There aren’t numerous trainers better at enhancing ‘cast-offs’ off their yards than Mick Appleby, whom seemingly have the Midas touch in terms of getting horses rejuvenated.
While United Front didn’t improve all that much, it absolutely was good to see him finish 2nd on his begin for their brand new connections at Chelmsford month that is last
He was once so highly thought of by his previous trainer Aidan O’Brien he didn’t hit the heights that his previous connections had hoped, and was unable to become a exciting breeding proposition, but he still has plenty of mileage as a race horse.
A that he ran in a £32,000 conditions race on his debut and also ran at Royal Ascot as a maiden. Perhaps reproduction of their 2nd at Chelmsford and on occasion even any one of their runs for their old garden and he’ll be bang there in this competitive race that is seven-runner.
13:58 Chepstow – Hold That Taught
(each-way)There is no better trainer to follow in handicaps in than Venetia Williams, who yet again is in the winner’s enclosure with her horses as they ground gets heavier.
Hold january That Taught
continues to be lightly-raced yet to display the very best of their capability, but he’s shown plenty of vow – none much more than on their current begin at Ascot, where he chased house the demachine that is now-140-ratedWith The trip, track and ground all set to suit this six-year-old, he’ll be ridden to do his work that is best later. Getting lumps of fat through the protagonists, they could be made by him pay. One This season.
She to watch(*)The race itself (11:45 Chepstow) might just be a little hot, but (*)Gastara (*)has run much better than the bear form has suggested on her two starts has plainly enhanced from her season that is first she was pitched in against some very smart horses in some of the better bumpers and on her novice hurdle debut.(*)She was very well-backed last time out (100/1 into 15/2), which suggested her.(*)She might just find some of her rivals a bit too hot to handle, but she won’t be without a chance that more was expected of.
