Ones to watch / Daily Pointers
- One of the clear highlights on a fantastic seven race card at Wincanton, the Grade 2 “Rising Stars” Novices’ Chase is due off at 2.25. Some fantastic prospects are set to face the starter in this two and a half mile heat, chief among them the Colin Tizzard-trained Reserve Tank. Turned over at odds of 4/5 in a three horse race on his seasonal debut at Chepstow 28 days ago, hopes remain sky high for a five year old who picked up Grade 1’s over hurdles at Aintree and Punchestown in the spring. He should be sharper now with a run under his belt. Robbie Power rides.
- Perhaps the single most exciting horse of the final weeks of the 2018/19 National Hunt campaign, the Nicky Henderson-trained Fusil Raffles is back in the 3.00 Wincanton. The Grade 2 Elite Hurdle is this massively talented four year old’s seasonal starting point, looking to pick up where he left off after decisively winning a Grade 1 at Punchestown in May.
- Controversially disqualified after finishing first past the post in the 2014 running of the Badges Ales Chase, Neil Mulholland’s The Young Master is back for another crack at the 3.35 Wincanton, looking to right what many view as an injustice after it became apparent he wasn’t qualified to run in the equivalent race five years ago after storming to ‘victory’. Now a ten year old, the veteran has paid his way by winning four times since, including the 2016 Whitbread.
- Back over hurdles today, keep an eye out for Top Notch in the 3.15 Aintree, an ultra-competitive looking two and a half mile Grade 2 Hurdle. The winner of 14 of his 27 starts overall, this lad has won first time out previously and hails from a stable currently operating at a 25% strike rate.
