The final selection we are putting up at Leopardstown on Sunday comes in the feature TRI Equestrian Grade B Handicap Chase over 2m5f and we like the look of Winter Escape for Aidan Howard.
The 11 year old, although getting on now looks made for this race having ran a cracker last time out and is only 1lb higher in the handicap for it.
A very consistent horse the gelding has finished third in five of his last six races, most of the time in big fielded handicap chases.
Three starts ago he was a good third behind Irish Gold Cup winner Conflated and then backed that up with a fair fifth at Christmas in another decent handicap event.
Last time out he bounced back to better form when third again behind the well handicapped Birchdale at the Dublin Racing Festival.
Only 1lb higher and with a handy 7lb claimer on board he has to be taken seriously.
