Betfair Ascot Chase

1. Cyrname

Trainer - Paul Nicholls

Jockey - Harry Cobden

The stand out runner in this four runner event is the highest rated jumps horse in the land with Cyrname looking to land back to back Ascot Chase's.

The Paul Nicholls trained eight year old has been a superstar for the yard over the last 12 months landing this Grade One last year before dethroning Altior on his first start of the season.

After he romped to a 17 length victory in this contest last season he was posed as the highest rated horse in the sport which t many was baffling.

However, in November Cyrname took on Altior in the clash of the season and he managed to end Nicky Henderson's 19 race winning run in the 1965 Christy Chase.

After that Cyrname was set up as the King George VI Chase favourite at Kempton on Boxing Day but he was out battled by stablemate and dual winner of the race Clan Des Obeaux.

Ascot to this horse is like Anfield to Liverpool, he is just at home and does his best work there and in a cracking renewal of the contest he should prevail again.

2. Janika

Trainer - Nicky Henderson

Jockey - Daryl Jacob

The seven year old gelding is a high class performer and warrants being entered into these types of contest but It would be a shock if he won the race.

He won over fences at Exeter on his debut in a taking performance in the Grade Two Haldon Gold Cup, he then entered the Tingle Creek where he was fourth behind the two market leaders.

He then went for a run over hurdles, stepping up in trip in the Relkeel Hurdle which looked a mistake but now back over fences he should go well.

Last time out he was outclassed at Ascot over two miles 1 furlong and hopefully for connections the step up in trip will bring more out of him as he will need to improve to go close with the favourite.

3. Riders Onthe Storm

Trainer - Nigel Twiston-Davies

Jockey - Sam Twiston-Davies

The seven year old gelding is the biggest rival to the favourite Cyrname on Saturday with Riders Onthe Storm being unbeaten this season winning two nice events.

He made his seasonal debut at Aintree in a very decent Handicap Chase which has since seen the second and third place go on to win good races at Cheltenham.

He was supposed to head the line up at jumps racing HQ back in December in the Betvictor Gold Cup but a problem with paaperwork saw him ruled out of the contest.

He then headed to Ascot over course and distance instead and in another decent race he bolted up looking like a class apart.

Now stepping into Grade One company he will have to step up a few pounds to match Cyrname but it is not out of the question.

4. Traffic Fluide

Trainer - Gary Moore

Jockey - Joshua Moore

The final runner of the rave is the big 40/1 outsider for Gary Moore who has been in superb form in his last four outings winning three of them and placing in another.

He has been lightly raced this season placing on his seasonal debut at Chepstow before getting off the mark for the season in the Sodexo Gold Cup at Ascot.

The step back in trip for this contest does make you wary but having good course form does leave him with the slightest chance of running a big one.
