Dave Nevison is looking forward to Tuesday's action, including a good fixture at Wetherby live on Racing TV. Our website tipster has two fancies on that card and heads to the all-weather to complete his trio of selections.
Once regarded as one of the best horses in Alan King’s yard, it never quite worked out because of various setbacks - though the trainer's daughter Georgia is still likely to hold that view after riding her first-ever winner aboard him last week!
That was an impressive four-length victory at Wolverhampton and it is difficult to see the penalty stopping the combination going in again here, especially as they boast a decent second over this course and distance on their previous run.
He might be bottom-weight for this handicap chase, but I would be very surprised if by the season's end he wasn't giving weight to his rivals here.
His win at Chepstow last time was impressive with his jumping particularly eye-catching. The substance of the form also stands up to visual impression, with three winners already coming out of the race.
His rivals do have a decent amount of ability and those opposing Eclair D'Ainay will be banking on the 14lb rise steadying him. Although it is indeed a massive rise, I don’t think it will stop him - especially if he gets into a similar jumping rhythm as last time.
This expensive recruit from the pointing ranks has always looked a future chaser despite a victory over hurdles, but injury struck after a promising debut at Doncaster a year ago.
He was absent for 10 months before his recent return and shaped nicely, again jumping well enough for a novice before very much looking like blowing up turning for home. He stayed on well again once getting his breath back.
He has been given a good four-week break since then and could now be ready to show himself a well-handicapped young staying chaser. The course should suit his forward-going running style.Fancy getting your hands on newly-designed Racing TV Gilet for FREE? Click here for more details!
