Wetherby, Down Royal and Ascot previews

There’s top grade national hunt action at both Wetherby and Down Royal.

The Charlie Hall features Silvia Conti who looked the winner jumping the last in the Gold Cup in March. Taquin Du Seuil was a festival winner as a novice chaser however and now attempts to mix it with the big boys. He was a shade disappointing at Newton Abbot on his reappearance but I take him to upset “Silvy” at this,stage if the season at least.

The supporting grade 2 hurdle at Wetherby has cut up badly but Cole Harden can beat At Fishers Cross and establish himself as a top staying hurdler.

Ma Filleulle was might impressive in the Topham in April and can see off Boston Bob  and Rocky Creek in an intriguing Champion Chase at Down Royal.

In the following Powered Irish Whiskey chase Wonderful Charm will be fancied to continue Paul Nicholls fantastic record in the race. However Don Cossack is taken to win what could be Antarctica battle.

The listed Byrne Group chase at Ascot sees Bellenos and Next Sensation bid to build on last season’s success with the latter just preferred.


Next Sensation

Baradari is well regarded by connections and is worth an each way interest in the 3.00 at Ascot.

Likewise Blakemount was highlighted by Sue Smith as a novice chaser to follow in the Racing Post on Friday and can get off to A winning start in the last race at Wetherby.
