My weekend fancies at Newbury and Kelso
It’s a reasonably quiet weekend for soar racing, but it surely typically is in between Cheltenham and Aintree.
I just like the look of Cap Du Nord as he goes again over hurdles at Kelso (14:05). He’s been in good kind this season over fences and is rated 5lb decrease over hurdles, so it could possibly be good placement by his shrewd coach. Jack Tudor takes 5lbs off him, too.
Newbury on Saturday
Misty Whisky (15:25) was a superb second within the Lanzarote Hurdle at Kempton two begins in the past and wasn’t far-off at Sandown on her newest begin too. I feel she’s moderately effectively handled off her mark of 124 and this race could have been the long run plan for her.
It’s going to be thrilling to see the relation to Douvan, Jonbon make his debut for Nicky Henderson within the bumper (17:45). He price a superb few quid (£570,000) and was very spectacular on his solely begin when he received some extent to level for Elle-Marie Holden.
If he hadn’t that have below his belt, he could have discovered it robust towards a couple of winners, however he’s had a run and he could possibly be very, superb.
Mr Coldstone travelled effectively for a great distance on the Dublin Racing Competition. He didn’t decide up in addition to his jockey would have hoped, however I used to be inspired by the best way he moved. He received on his debut over hurdles for Willie, and I count on him to go effectively right here.
Yukon Lil was a superb third behind Elimay final outing. She’s a wise horse. I keep in mind using her in her bumper and Black Tears, who received the Mares’ Hurdle at Cheltenham final week, was second. She’s in all probability a category aside within the race and may take all the beating below Paul Townend.
Chatham Road Lad went very effectively for a great distance within the Marsh Chase on the Competition. He was bang in competition coming down the hill however simply couldn’t go along with the very class Chantry Home. That is extra winnable and I count on him to make amends for his Mick Winters.
Belle Metallic completely sluiced up on her debut and has since been bought by Kenny Alexander, who owns Honeysuckle and different good mares. He likes shopping for promising fillies and mares and this one seems one other from that mould. She could possibly be too good for all of them right here.
