Peterborough Chase day at Huntingdon and the feature race looks a really difficult one to call with Le Bague Au Roi returning after being found in season when pulling up on her seasonal bow at Wetherby.
Top Notch looked good over hurdles last time but he was possibly a fortuitous winner. Aso is perhaps the most solid one of the three having run well in the Charlie Hall last time.
It’s difficult to choose between these three, as all have questions to answer, so I will be looking elsewhere on the card for a selection.
On the supporting card at Huntingdon, TEA CLIPPER is a horse I really like, yes he is going up in class with Champion Jockey Richard Johnson on board but he can win again and retain his unbeaten status.
Tom Lacey’s improver won nicely at Kempton Park last time showing a decent attitude to win decisively. The son of Stowaway looked potentially useful last time and I’m hoping he can continue his forward progression in the two-mile handicap hurdle.
Tea Clipper makes his handicap debut at Huntingdon and while the handicapper hasn’t taken any chances, I think he has more scope than HIS rivals.
Charlie Longsdon's mare NO TRUMPS is clocking up the mileage this season having been sent up to Hexham to win in determined fashion last month and she now makes the long journey up to Kelso for the Novices' handicap hurdle.
Owned by Her Majesty the Queen, this big, strapping mare is unbeaten so far this term and is certainly built to carry the weight. I can see her grinding her rivals into submission.
Young Tom Buckley has ridden the Royal-owned mare to success in both of her runs so far this season and again is on board which is a positive.
Anthony's Best Bets (scale 1-5 points):
1pt win TEA CLIPPER (7-4 general)
1pt win NO TRUMPS (100-30 general)
