Tom Cannon

Deyrann De Carjac

J: Tom Cannon
T: Alan King
Age: 9
Weight: 11-11
OR: 129
Days: 56

The nine year old although not been seen winning since 2019 has seen his mark been creeping down the handicap whilst running fairly credibly and back in this company presents him an opportunity to get back to winning ways.

This season the gelding need his seasonal debut being pitched into the Grade Three Paddy Power Gold Cup at Cheltenham in November.

But since that run has been seen back at Prestbury Park on two occasions in similar Grade Three events and has finished fifth both times, firstly in the Racing Post Gold Cup in October and then on New Year's Day.

Dropping down to a mark of 129 in a Class 3 event having been running in Grade Three events makes him a big player if retaining all his ability.

He is now 8lb below his last winning mark.

Jason Hart

Lord Riddiford

J: Jason Hart
T: John Quinn
Age: 7
Weight: 9-0
OR: 102
Days: 14

The experienced seven year old has been a very smart sprinter over the years winning a big handicap at last year's Glorious Goodwood ahead of some very talented sprinters.

His all weather record also speaks for himself, especially round here over five furlongs, winning this event last year in good fashion seeing off a Group One placed horse.

Having had a lovely prep run at Wolverhampton earlier on in the month( the race he used before winning the race last year) it should have put him bang on for this event and being drawn in stall four, he could getaway from the field off the bend.

Big player.

Brian Hughes

Kitty's Light

J: Brian Hughes
T: Christian Williams
Age: 6
Weight: 11-2
OR: 140
Days: 42

The six year old gelding has Brian Hughes booked which is always a bonus, but at his current price looks a tasty each way bet if bouncing back to form.

A winner at Kelso back in March last year off a mark of 135, he then stepped up in trip for the Grade Three Gold Cup Handicap Chase off 139 and was a narrow second in a photo-finish running a career best.

Kitty's Light returned in October at Chepstow finishing a narrow second to a well handicapped rival in Chirico Vallis.

He was then bumped up to a mark of 149 where he finished a superb second in the Grade Two Charlie Hall Chase, but struggled back in handicaps since, being pulled up at Newbury and then running no race at all on two occasions in soft ground.

He is now back down to a mark of 140 which is very workable considering how he ran in the Grade Three Gold Cup off only 1lb higher.

Good/ good to soft ground is the key to this horse and he gets that Saturday.
