The first race of the afternoon on ITV sees the official start of the jumps season with Chepstow offering two days of superb racing.
The first event on ITV is the Veteran's Handicap Chase over close to three miles and we think Cloth Cap can get back to form and should gave too much for this field off the best of his form.
A one time favourite for the Grand National off the back of his form in the 20/21 season he rose up the handicap but unfortunately was pulled up in the Aintree feature.
Since then he has found things very tough seeing him as high as 156 and slowly going down to a mark of 144.
He now steps into his easiest event for some time and although top weight if having any of the same enthusiasm for the game as he previously did, he should go close.
Gets his ideal ground.
