This former point winner looks interesting now switching to the larger obstacles for the first time on just his 2nd handicap start. A winner of a novice hurdle in deep ground over this trip in November he ran a promising race just 9 days ago on handicap debut over 3 mile, just weakening out of things late on. Noel Williams does well with his chasers and it looks eye catching that Paddy Brennan who rode when successful at Lingfield returns in the saddle.
This previous CD looks to hold strong claims with the return to 10f and likely strong early pace to suit. Has slipped down to below a previous winning mark now and has put in a couple of solid efforts in similar races to this at Newcastle and Wolverhampton suggesting his turn is not far away. it`s a positive that he now has the assistance of PJ Mcdonald in the saddle today who has a 22% strike rate at Chelmsford in the last year and numbers of 37 rides 6 wins 11 places in the same time period when teaming up with the Ian Williams yard.
A competitive looking Lincoln trial, Fox Power looks likely to run his race but he is a short enough price and with Fansbet paying and an extra place 1-2-3-4 it looks worth seeking out some each way value. With 5 CD victories to his name Kaser looks rock solid to run his race, he has looks progressive this winter winning 3 of his last 6 and although only 5th of 6 last time out he wasn’t beaten far with the race not being ran to suit. David Loughane continues in good form including 3 winners in the last fortnight and Hollie Doyle comes in for the ride who has a 26% strike rate with the yard in A/W handicaps.
