For the second day in a row, it was a case of what might have been. Saga Aravis – who had been up in the van for the entirety of the concluding 2m4f handicap hurdle, pecked badly at the back of the last flight and gave up his winning chance, when it looked like he would be going very close. These things do happen though and I’m hopeful that a couple of days of poor luck can be countered by a couple of days of good luck.
With no National Hunt action in Ireland to get stuck into, it falls on Chepstow today to provide the entertainment – and I have three selections from the card. Starting off with the 1.30 race – which is a 2m7f handicap chase and looks like an interesting contest. On Call was an excellent winner at Chepstow last time out, but I have reservations about him backing that effort up and am willing to take him on as a result. Instead, I am more than happy to take a swing on the top-weight, Galileo Silver – who probably hasn’t shown his best ability yet over fences. However, if he is to show it, it could well be today with his stable in good form and with his liking for the track over hurdles. These are all positives and a weight of 115, especially in this class of race, should make him more than competitive on a lot of his known form. At a price of 8/1 with SkyBet, who are offering 4 places on this race, he looks like a good each way option.
The 2.30 race on the card is perhaps the most interesting of the lot this afternoon and has an excellent field of 13 go to post in this 2m novices handicap chase. I’m very intrigued by Brave Seasca in this race, who looks the type to improve massively for fences and is one of Venetia Williams’ types to improve as they get older and wiser. Brave Seasca has only had the four starts under rules, so is thoroughly unexposed and his last run, when winning a novice hurdle back in February, was comfortably the best effort he has posted to date. That has given him an opening handicap mark of 123 – which seems fair based on that run and could have further scope for improvement. Obviously one has to take it on trust about his jumping and his ability to go well fresh, but Venetia is beginning to get her string to run well and this is her time of the year. At a price of 15/2 with SkyBet, who are paying 5 places – he is another each way bet.
The final race of the day for myself is the 3.00 race, which is a 2m3f maiden hurdle. Brave Kingdom is the first horse to run from the switch of horses between Harry Whittington and Paul Nicholls, and it will be very interesting to see how he equips himself in this contest. However, I am very excited to see the rules debut of Coachman, who could be a very bright prospect based on his PtP form in Ireland. Having came third in his first PtP, he bounded in at Tipperary in April and was subsequently sold for 140,000. His trainer, Oliver Signy, is still making his way in the game and one can’t help but feel that the horse is only this price today because of the trainer. However, Signy showed off last year he was more than capable of training good horses to win races and these owners have backed him to succeed – which I love to see. At a best price of 15/2 with Bet365, I am backing him each way.
