The feature event of the afternoon from Wetherby is the Grade Two Charlie Hall Chase over three miles and this seasons renewal looks an absolute cracker with Bravemansgame taking on Ahoy Senor for a fourth time.
We are siding with the Paul Nicholls trained gelding Bravemansgame, who we think has a better record going fresh, will love the flat track and if any chance of being the King George horse they think he can be, he surely has to run well in this.
The Grade One winning hurdler took to chasing in impressive fashion at Newton Abbot on seasonal debut last term, jumping a near perfect round whilst making all from the front.
He then went to Haydock and against another experienced field went on to win easily, being eased down towards the end.
Looking to land a hat-trick over the bigger obstacles in the Grade One Kauto Star Novices' Chase at Kempton over Christmas, he out jumped and saw off the challenge of Ahoy Senor to land the spoils.
Dropped into handicap company giving a lot of weight away he prevailed again to take a decent event ahead of the Cheltenham festival.
The ground came up testing for the Brown Advisory on the second day of the meeting and he was pulled out of the race, but did finish his season off Aintree when something was amiss finishing last of the four in the Grade One Mildmay Novices' Chase behind Ahoy Senor.
The pair have met three times with the scored at 2-1 to Lucinda Russell's gelding, but although Ahoy Senor might turn out to be the better horse throughout the year, we think this will be Bravemansgame's day.
Having a superb record when first time out winning on his first start in the last two seasons, performing well on flatter tracks, he looks to have a lot in his favour.
