The Favourite: Fazayte

Fazyte is on the hunt for this first win and the five-year-old has placed in two hurdles and two NH Flat races from six starters. He was third on his last trip, a 2m hurdle at Kelso last month.

Fazayte has shaped up well in contests and there is plenty for him to build on. He is going in a handicap for the first time and this is a new distance for him as well. Will it come together for that first win?

Fazayte is the 11/4 favourite* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 21:03 GMT on Monday, 16th March 2020)



Present From Dubai

Present From Dubai has plenty of experience in the bag and his last trip was a 2m contest at Newbury in mid-January. He was ticking along in second place before the last in that one. It was a good work out nonetheless as he finished 6th after fading.

That trip to Newbury had followed a winning run at Uttoxeter and he had been 8lb heavier. The win at Uttoxeter had been just his second race back in action after nearly a year away and has considerations here at 4/1* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 21:03 GMT on Monday, 16th March 2020)


Bobndave is going to be comfortable in the company and on the trip. He has not been in action since August last year in hurdle action. He is still at the same mark as he was when he went on his break.

The 2m trip is easily within his sphere and he had been in consistent form with getting place finishes. But is there the extra in him to deliver a win?

That’s a tough one to call, but certainly has place claims and is a 7/2 option* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 21:03 GMT on Monday, 16th March 2020) to at least get in the frame.

Half Bolly

On switching from the flat to the hurdle, Half Bolly came up with a win at 14/1 on his hurdle debut at Market Rasen in September last year. That was at a 2m distance as well. He had two runs following that and seemed to go a little backwards with form. Half Bolly pulled up at Kelso at the end of February.


Gennady turned out a poor run for his new stable here at Wetherby in early March. That was a little surprising as well. He was coming along with nice form over the hurdles before that and had won at Newcastle in early January.

So it may be worth forgiving that poor show at Wetherby as new trainer Sam England clearly is going to address whatever went on. He’s a better horse than he showed here last time and is not to be totally dismissed at 9/1* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 21:03 GMT on Monday, 16th March 2020).

Rest Of The Runners

Laskadine will begin just his third run for his new stable after leaving Nicky Henderson. So far in his couple of trips at the new yard has looked unimpressive.

Mcgarry was going well in novice hurdles but was poor at course and distance in his last run in early March. Faces the handicap conditions for the first time which may help him out and one to watch.

Lucou has no win on the board. After coming over from France he really hasn’t looked comfortable for trainer Mickey Hammond. He claimed a fourth in a 2m hurdle at Newcastle on his last trip, which was earlier this month.

Predictions & Tips

It is not a straight forward, clear field, is this one. There are a couple that pique interest only under potentially improving terms. The first of those is going to be Mcgarry who showed a lot of potential in novice hurdles and can benefit from a course and distance run ahead of this,  his first handicap showing.

Also on his handicap debut, we have to look at Fazayte. This third-place finish at Carlisle was good and he looks to have good form, even if he hasn’t struck the win yet. The conditions here may change that.
