tote.co.uk Conditional Jockeys’ Novices’ Handicap Hurdle

Sometimes Always (1pt win only 15/2)

Seasonal/Handicap debut and comes here having already put in a couple of decent performances at the track, most noteably when 4th behind Ivor last November which is arguably the pick of all of the form on offer here. Yard do pretty well with their jumpers here but are yet to fire this season so slight doubt over wether this one is match fit but with Jack Tudor in the saddle you can be certain of a run for your money.

Whoopie (1pt win only 14/1)

Has the benefit of a couple of runs under her belt coming into this unlike a couple of the more fancied runners and whilst possibly not quite up to the same level as a couple of these comes in with the yard going very well at present and in the hands of one of the better conditionals. Receives bags of weight all round and is overpriced at 14/1.

Ascot Underwriting Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase

Smarty Wild (1pt win only 7/1)

Closely matched with the market principals on hurdles form and is worth a try as the value angle in a wide open race. Yard going pretty well and have a decent record here over the last 12 months. Richard Johnson in the saddle and plenty to like now tackling the bigger obstacles for the first time.

Sodexo Handicap Hurdle

Malaya (1pt win only 8/1)

Won the Imperial Cup in 2019 but has not quite scaled the same heights since. Took an encouraging step back in the right direction when last seen in February and can go close here today from the same mark. Previous CD winner with conditions looking favourable for top yard who are bang in form.

Sodexo Gold Cup Handicap Chase

Mite Bite (0.5pt EW 20/1 5 Places)

Top class chaser who has been given a chance to get back amongst it here at the age of 11 by the handicapper. Finished 2nd in the Gold Cup 2 years ago and showed signs of that ability when 3rd at Newbury back in Feb. Disappointing last time out but has conditions to suit today. Fingers crossed that Nicky Henderson has got him tuned up for rolling back the years.
