Gary Moore
Age: 4
Weight: 10-2
OR: 116
Days: 27

The first race of the day is the Novices' Championship Handicap Hurdle over two miles and at the prices Royaume Uni looks a good each way bet.

The Gary Moore trained gelding is only four years of age and could have the most improvement to come in this field and having ran well last time out, his mark of 116 could be exploited.

Having been finding his way on the flat and over hurdles, his latest outing at Ascot when a close second to Herbiers in a Juvenile Handicap Hurdle.

Coming into this race off the back of that run and being bottom weight is worth taking chance on him, especially on ground he handles well.

Days: 245

The only race on ITV from Leicester on Saturday is the Listed King Richard III Stakes over seven furlongs and we can't look past the favourite Lord Campari.

The four year old trained by Roger Varian has only been seen four times during his career, finishing sixth on debut behind Palace Pier in 2019.

He then returned as a three year old at Newbury over a mile and went on to win in impressive style seeing off Tsar for John Gosden.

The son of Kingman was then pitched into the Listed Sir Henry Cecil Stakes at Newmarket and did not run his race at all only beating one home.

Given a little break, he returned in a Group Three at Deauville in August and the testing ground went against him when running into fifth.

This four year old has a superb pedigree and getting back onto quicker conditions should be the making of him.

Paul Nicholls
Age: 9
Weight: 11-6
OR: 167
Days: 36

The first big race of the day is the Grade Two Oaksey Chase over 2m 6 1/2f and Frodon should be a class above this field if on song.

Frodon has been a superstar for the 11 time champion trainer Paul Nicholls winning some huge races including the Old Roan Chase at Aintree and the Ryanair Chase at the 2019 Cheltenham festival.

Stepped up to 3m1f in October the gelding landed the competitive Handicap Chase off top weight at Prestbury Park.

He produced a superb round off jumping giving weight away to the whole field, but last time out stepped back up in Class for the Grade two Many Clouds Chase and was well below par.

There were plenty of fences removed that day which did not suit him, but last time out he gave one of the performances of the season when winning the Grade One King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day.

He went from the front and gave an expert round of jumping and tried to do the same in the Gold Cup but ultimately faded late one behind the Irish contingent.

Back in a small field and slightly down in trip is a huge positive and also having proven form on good ground he looks a solid contender at the top of the market.

Charles Hills
Age: 4
Weight: 9-8
OR: 93
Days: 193

The only event from Haydock is the Class 2 Handicap over seven furlongs and Persuasion for Charles Hills looks to be the one to watch in this event.

The four year old was highly tried in 2020 having been raced three times as a juvenile and showing clear ability on fast ground, getting off the mark on debut at Goodwood.

The son of Acclamation ended last year on the up when a good second at Leicester in a handicap in heavy ground and now getting back to quicker ground it should play to his strengths.

Charles Hills is currently in flying form and many of his horses have been winning on there first starts this term.

Nicky Henderson
Age: 11
Weight: 11-7
OR: 169
Days: 118

The feature race of the day at Sandown is the Grade One Celebration Chase over two miles and we are siding with the three time winner of the race Altior.

Altior has been a horse of a lifetime for Seven Barrows, being a four time Cheltenham festival winner, taking out the Supreme Novices' Hurdle, Arkle and the Queen Mother Champion Chase twice.

Having been set to try and land his third consecutive Champion Chase last season he was pulled out of the race due to a setback and only returned at Christmas having almost a year off the track.

One of the biggest shocks of the season came when the superstar was beaten for the second time in his career by 20/1 shot Nube Negra, with the 10 year old struggling from a long way out.

Henderson was quick to defend his horse after the race and got rid of any assumptions that retirement was looming for the star, but it now looks as though the handler had a genuine excuse for his horse not running to his usual level, with the gelding returning a dirty scope.

Since then he has not been seen, missing the Champion Chase with a small setback and should be fresh for this event and if being at his best looks to be a nice price at 5/2, with him finally getting his good ground.

Henry De Bromhead
Age: 8
Weight: 11-0
OR: 138
Days: 37

The big fielded Grade Three Handicap Chase over a marathon trip sees some familiar faces head to post and we think it could be another Irish domination job.

The only Irish raider in the field is Plan Of Attack for Henry De Bromhead and with the trainer having a record breaking season, and Rachael Blackmore coming over for the ride, they must think this lad has a big chance.

This season the eight year old has been hit and miss on soft/heavy ground looking to need good ground and he will get that on Saturday

.Having been pulled up on his first two starts of the season, he then went to Leopardstown and finished a better eighth of 22 runners in the three mile Paddy Power Chase.

Last time over 3m2f at the Cheltenham festival in the Kim Muir he was running his best race of the season, when leading the event, but unfortunately falling three out.

The eight year old seems to have been waiting for this better ground all season and heading into off the same mark as his Kim Muir run could make him dangerous.
