Another smart race at Newbury is the Grade Two Game Spirit Chase over two miles and we are going for the youngest horse in the race, Hitman.
Having ran respectably over hurdles in France the son of Falco made his British/chase debut at Ffos Las in November in very tricky conditions.
The six year old took every fence in his stride, getting better as the race went on and went on to win the event by an eased down 30 lengths.
That performance was highly impressive and he looked to prove he was a Grade One horse in the making next time out at Sandown when being entered into the Henry VIII Novices' Chase.
Having a big reputation the yard thought he had a big chance but on the day he had to settle for second behind the impressive Allmankind, who landed the event in good style.
With that run under his belt in Grade One company he headed into the Scilly Isles Novices' Chase on Saturday, looking for the step up in trip to really bring him along but unfortunately he fell.
He got back to winning ways at Newbury before heading to Aintree in the Grade One Manifesto Novices' Chase where he looked the winner jumping the last but was outstayed close home and finished a narrow third.
This season he has been twice, starting the Grade Two Haldon Gold Cup where getting tired after jumping the last and was chinned close home by Eldorado Allen.
Looking to go one better in the Grade One Tingle Creek, he again had to settle for second behind stablemate Greaneteen and having now not been seen since then he should be primed for this event.
