CLOTH CAP is seeking a return to top form, and while his recent results don’t stack up too much, he has claims.

Cloth Cap has put together some credible efforts in defeat and he will be going off from a competitive mark on Saturday which should give him a chance.

LE MILOS is bang in form at the moment and he will be seeking a hattrick, so is thriving.

He’s not always the most interested, but he seems to be in good enough heart right now.

Le Milos moves up 4lb after scoring at Sandown narrowly last month, which followed a score at Exeter. If he carries on in the right mood then Le Milos should pose a threat.

UNDER SUPERVISION hasn’t gotten his nose in front this season, but there have been some solid efforts from him.

He has been in handicaps the last twice, contests in which he probably should have done a little better in.

Still, a credible fourth at Sandown last time could give him something to build on.

STORM CONTROL collected a score at Newbury in January and almost dug out a win in the Sky Bet Chase as his follow up.

Storm Control isn’t the best of finishers, but has been in a much better frame of mind as of late and will have claims if he stays there, despite coming up a further 4lb.


Ones to watch: Cloth Cap 6/1, Storm Control 4/1

HOLLY HARTINGO is seeking a hat-trick after scoring at Huntingdon on her latest effort, which was 50 days ago.

She looks to have taken to rules pretty well and the 6-year-old doesn’t look as if she has reached the top of her game just yet either.

MISS FAIRFAX is another hattrick seeker lining up in this fascinating Listed company contest on Saturday.

She took a maiden win at Exeter in January and easily scored a penalty to follow up at Catterick three weeks ago.

There’s plenty to like about her and Miss Fairfax could make further strides.

GET A TONIC has been in good form this season, picking up a couple of wins along the way.

Those were in a Leicester maiden and a Uttoxeter novice last year.

Get A Tonic war last seen three weeks ago in a Listed mares’ contest in which she rattled the crossbar.

SO SAID I is on the up at the moment and has the chance at a hattrick, although this will be her toughest assignment yet.

She came in after scoring at Newbury a couple of weeks ago. So Said I may need a couple to falter as she comes up in grade, but place claims could be there if she finds improvement.

Tip: GET A TONIC 6/4

Ones to watch: Holly Hartingo 9/2, So Said I 12/1

NORTH LODGE looks like the one to beat in this contest. It has been two wins from two from him so far.

He kicked things off with a win on his debut, looking in superb control at Aintree.

North Lodge followed that up with a Grade 2 contest at Cheltenham five weeks ago.

He still looks like he has plenty more to bring to the table as well and this looks well within his range.

RICHMOND LAKE is another of the likely big players in his contest as he looked like a very useful novice.

He doubled his tally on Boxing Day with a score at Sedgefield, which was his penultimate run.

Richmond Lake went even better with a runner-up spot at Haydock six weeks ago in a Grade 2 hurdle.

SHOLOKJACK brings an unbeaten record to the table and he looks for further improvement.

It’s two from two over the hurdles and Sholokjack looked extremely comfortable in delivering the odds at Wetherby on a 2m trip a month ago.


Ones to watch: Richmond Lake 5/2, Sholokjack 5/1

14:40 Kelso Chase Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Listed
Age: 5-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 7
Distance: 2m 7f

ITCHY FEET brings some solid claims forward in this one and he is a former Grade 1 novice winner in the chasing sphere.

He hasn’t won this season but has consistently churned out positive efforts. Itchy Feet was at Lingfield for his latest run.

That was 41 days ago and Itchy Feet faced a much stiffer field than he will be up against in this one.

ESPOIR DE ROMAY failed to get himself going last time out when he took a third-place finish at Carlisle.

That was in October on a return to action after a break. The pick of his form last season easily puts him in the frame for this one.

DINGO DOLLAR can make a case for himself in this contest and can’t be taken lightly.

There was an excellent Rehearsal Chase effort from Dingo Dollar on his latest run, three months ago.

He’s a good bold front runner and there is no problem with his stamina.


Ones to watch: Espoir De Romay 6/4, Dingo Dollar 7/1

Race Type: Listed
Age: 3-year-olds only
Declared Runners: 7
Distance: 7f

Race Preview

EL CABALLO is in fine form at the moment and looks to be on a big upward curve.

He completed a hat trick last time out with a score at Newcastle.

That was in a minor event in a minimum field, but he scored by a fair distance ahead of Canonised who is also in this field.

This will be the Polytrack debut for El Caballo, but he rates as a danger.

WITCH HUNTER is capable of making a big challenge after picking up a win at Wolverhampton on his latest effort.

That was only five days ago, so this is a quick turnaround. But he didn’t even need to be at his best to get that. Witch Hunter can handle himself in this kind of challenge.

ANTHEM NATIONAL could bring some interesting claims to the table and opened his account at the second time of asking 10 days ago.

That was a comfortable score at Newcastle. More will be asked of him in this one, but he could spring a surprise.


Ones to watch: El Caballo 6/4, Witch Hunter 7/4

Race Type: Grade 3

Declared Runners: 10
Distance: 2m 3f

SENIOR CITIZEN could have a say in this wide-open contest. He will return to business for the first time since September.

On his penultimate run, Senior Citizen banked a win at Market Rasen and then was runner-up in the Grand Sefton at Aintree.

If he’s in the same mood then he could be right in this.

FARINET picked up a victory at Sandown on his penultimate run. His follow up was at the same venue when he was tried at 3m.

That didn’t pan out as he could do no better than fifth. The move back to this mid-distance clearly is going to send him some help.

AMOOLA GOLD has as good of a chance as anyone in this contest. He arrives after a good effort last time out.

That was a third-place finish at Warwick three weeks ago.

As Amoola Gold is down 2lb from that effort, the smart chaser could have claims.


Ones to watch: Amoola Gold 14/1, Glenforsa 5/1
