Race Preview

CAP DU NORD should be a big contender in the Coral Trophy Handicap Chase on Saturday.

He has not quite hit the levels that he did in the previous campaign.

But there were more encouraging signs from him when he took third in the Sky Bet at Doncaster a month ago.

Cap Du Nord is on a good mark based on last season’s form.

This is a competitive renewal of this fixture and if he is top form then he could have a say.

ANNSAM was a winner in the Silver Cup Chase at Ascot on his latest appearance which was 70 days ago.

There was a marked improvement in his jumping form in that win.

It remains to be seen if he can continue in that kind of form, as his jumping ability has been shown up from time to time.

Still, regardless of some dodgy jumping efforts, Annsam was an improver over the fences last season and should have a say at the business end of this.

THE BIG BREAKAWAY has gotten himself into the places the last two times, but he hasn’t quite been as sharp as connections would have hoped.

The Big Breakaway had a big season last term which included a place in a group of Grade 1s, including at course and distance. The tongue strap goes on for the first time.

FIVE STAR GETAWAY is also worth a look after claiming a win at the course and distance on his penultimate run.

He was rapidly rising in the chasing sphere last season and with a third under his belt at Sandown three weeks ago on his latest, Five Star Getaway may be a player.


Ones to watch: Cup Du Nord 13/2, The Big Breakaway 8/1

Distance: 2m

Race Preview

SHALLWEHAVEONEMORE could prove to be the one to beat in this contest as he brings winning form to the table.

He was clinical in landing that score three weeks ago at Sandown.

If he is anywhere near the same kind of mood, Shallwehaveonemore may be hard to stop.

AUCUNRISQUE is sitting on a hat-trick bid and still looks as if he has more to come.

He opened his account over the timbers with a win at Plumpton last month and then followed up at Wincanton on his handicap debut.

ICEO is unexpected but looking as if he could bring a bold challenge to the table in the Dovecote.

He opened his account over the hurdles at the first time of asking last summer in France.

He followed up with a course and distance win here at Kempton in December.

Iceo did struggle on his latest in a Cheltenham effort a month ago, but that form can be excused.


Ones to watch: Aucunrisque 7/2, Iceo 9/2

PIC D’ORSAY has won two of his last four runs and the best of those was at Ascot in December.

That was a Grade 2 win over the fences that he took.

Pic D’orhy needs a bounce back after a loss at Sandown last time out, but if he is on his game then he can shine in this one.

FANTASTIC LADY could be the way to go in this contest as she looks as if she may well be able to handle this move up in grade.

Fantastic Lady is actually sitting on a hat trick chance after scoring at Warwick and Banger recently.

She’s rapidly on the up and can cause this field some headaches.

MINELLA DRAMA seems to have taken to the fences well enough and took a Grade 2 score on his latest, which was at Haydock.

He comes up again and that is going to make this more testing. But if Minella Drama can dig deep enough, there could be a chance.


Ones to watch: Minella Drama 2/1, Pic D’orhy 2/1

LORD NORTH is to be respected in this contest after bolting up to land a powerful win the last time he was seen.

That was last March when he scored in the Group 1 Dubai Turf at Meydan.

For this return after a lengthy absence, Lord North is down in class.

FANCY MAN was a winner at course and distance three weeks ago and that was a comfortable victory for him.

So he could be in the frame as he now goes in search of a hattrick.

If he builds on that there he will have a serious chance.

KING OF THE SOUTH was defeated by Fancy Man at the course and distance three weeks ago.

He didn’t really lose much in that one and it had been a four-timer bid.

So there’s nothing wrong with his form, but he may just need a little more to get the win on the board.

Tip: FANCY MAN 7/2

Ones to watch: Lord North 10/11, King Of The South 33/1 e/w

Race Type: Listed
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 6
Distance: 5f

Race Preview

EXALTED ANGEL was sixth in the Listed fixture here at Lingfield three weeks ago.

He lost his way a bit in the finish of that win. But he is a former course winner and is the top-rated horse in the field so Exalted Angel warrants some respect.

TONE THE BARONE should be a player and he was third in a course and handicap last time out.

There was three wins for him last year and that last run, 50 days ago was his first of the year. After the short break he could be ready to go.

LORD RIDDIFORD won last year’s renewal of this and could have a decent chance of a follow-up.

There were three wins last year for him and returned from a short break to take a third at Wolverhampton a couple of weeks ago.

That should have warmed him up nicely in this one.


Ones to watch: Exalted Angle 5/2, Lord Riddiford 7/2

Distance: 6f

Race Preview

MARKS BEAR has finished as the runner up in each of his last three efforts, so he has been knocking on the door.

He was left poorly placed in his last one, which was 42 days ago.

Marks Bear is a former course and distance winner and gets on the shortlist.

IF YOU DARE comes up 3lb for this effort and looks to double up after scoring at Southwell 38 days ago.

He has a pretty good AW record behind him and could have more to bring to the table.

ASADJUMEIRAH is on a hattrick as he comes up 5lb because of his rapidly improving form.

He had plenty in hand getting a score at Newcastle a couple of weeks ago and looks progressive enough to go on further.


Ones to watch: Marks Bear 3/1, If Your Dare 6/1
