Novices' Chase

Calendar 14th March
Horse Racing icon start time 14:10
Horse Racing icon Dysart Dynamo
Arrow down

Shorter distance than usual should play in to Dysart Dynamo’s strengths in a race where he faces little pressure with all the focus going on the battle between Jonbon and Dysart Dynamo.

Has improves as a chaser since his fall here last year and won at Leapordstown just after Christmas.

Many consider Dysart Dynamo the best jumper in this field and if he can get out in front early on, he could make it incredibly hard to get pegged back.

Despite the race being shorter, the horses take in 13 fences, compared to 11 at a track like Leapordstown which only bolsters claims for at least a place here.

Handicap Chase

Horse Racing icon Happygolucky

This race looks very tricky to dissect but I’m more than happy to have a swing on Happygolucky at 14/1 with multiple bookies offering extended places.

This horse was sent off a very well backed 100/30 favourite for this in 2021 where he finished 2nd behind the age-defying Vintage Clouds before swiftly making amends with a facile win at Aintree.

He returns 2 years later after injury and is rated just 3lb higher than that day so he still ought to go well.

He returned from his injury after a 595 day break with a very credible run at Newcastle behind the classy L’Homme Presse and Into Overdrive who he meets again on 8lb better terms.

I think his price should be more similar to second favourite Into Overdrive’s considering he now has race fitness on his side and doesn’t have to concede so much weight to him this time round. He’s a huge price in the circumstances and I think he’ll definitely place, if not win.

David Nicholson Mares' Hurdle

Calendar 16th March

Horse Racing icon Maries Rock

This looks like one of the most competitive grade one races for a very long time and I can’t wait. Any of the first four in the betting could win but I’ll be siding with last year’s winner Marie’s Rock at 3/1.

Since stepping up to the intermediate distance she has been an absolute revelation and has won every start over a middle distance trip bar when she was hampered and pulled up in the Lanzarote at Kempton.

She has won five races out of 6 at intermediate trips including two grade ones and a grade two last time out at Cheltenham’s new course where she carried a penalty and still dispatched of a competitive field really easily.

There was talk of her going to the Stayers Hurdle but I think it’s only right that she comes here to defend her crown and she’s definitely got a huge chance having won the race last year and already beating Epatante at Punchestown.

Fred Winter Juvenile Hurdle

Calendar 14th March
Horse Racing icon start time 16:50
Horse Racing icon Sir Allen
Arrow down

With so many runners and extra place terms on offer, I think it’s more beneficial to put up a horse each way in this handicap and the horse I suggest is Sir Allen at 11/1 for Andrew Slattery and Danny Mullins.

Tekao is a danger of course but 9/2 doesn’t represent fantastic value. This horse is seemingly going from strength to strength and crucially won the juvenile hurdle at Naas that three of the last four Boodles winners won before winning this race.

Another crucial bit of information is that he was only five lengths behind the well regarded Triumph Hurdle favourite Blood Destiny on his hurdles debut which now looks like very good form and also form that entitles him to be well handicapped.

A small negative would be that a jockey has been claiming on him for all of his runs so far meaning he’s carried less weight but I think the booking of Danny Mullins is certainly eye catching and his experience around Cheltenham certainly makes up for it, 11/1 is great each way value.
