Watch Racing For Free At Coral Handicap Chase

Cepage (1pt win only 4/1)

Worth another try dropping in grade here. By far the class act in the race and its a race that trainer Venetia Williams has won on 5 of the last 8 runnings. Disappointing on return which is a slight worry as he often goes well fresh, but we can forgive that as with the year we have had preparations may well not have gone as planned. If able to find the form of his Cheltenham run from this time last year should be bang there today.

Coral ‘Fail To Finish’ Free Bets Handicap Hurdle

Ask Dillon (1pt win only 5/1)

Third in this race last year and returns for another try effectively 1lb lower in the weights when taking into consideration Liam Harrison’s 7lb claim. Progressive looking sort who has gone well on his last two outings in similar staying races. Yard are going well and this one comes here in great heart and today’s heavy ground may just eek out a little extra.

Coral Supporting Prostate Cancer Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase

Highland Hunter (1pt win only 5/1)

Mud loving stayer who went straight in the tracker following an eyecatching run on reappearance. Put in another fine effort next time out and would have finished much closer had he not been badly hampered. Stayed on dourly after that and is worth a try on chasing debut from this very fair mark. Paul Nicholls has a 43% strike with his runners here in the last 12 months and this points winner looks the sort to be even better now tackling the bigger obstacles.

Coral Welsh Grand National Handicap Chase

Dominateur (0.5pt Ew 5places 16/1)

2 wins and 2 placed efforts from 4 runs at this course. Ran well enough on reappearance on ground that was way too quick for this mud lover. Will stay this marathon trip and looks well enough treated to be involved here today. Still improving and far less exposed than many of his rivals. Gavin Sheehan back on board and his record for the yard is an encouraging one with 6 wins and 5 placed from 20 rides for a 30% strike.
