Paul Nicholls and Harry Cobden enjoyed a double at the Cheltenham Festival and will look for more success at Chepstow, live on Sky Sports Racing.
3.15 Chepstow – Grivetana bets on the Festival-winning combo
He Cazoo Search Drive Smile Mares’ Handicap Hurdle (3:15) is ultra-competitive, but no doubt Paul Nicholls’ team will be relying on a third hurdle success to grivetana.
Harry Cobden takes the ride and will ride with plenty of confidence after a double win at the Cheltenham Festival at Stage Star and Stay Away Fay.
Of the others, Ucanaver took a good third at Ludlow with Rex Dingle leading, while Felicie Du Maquis attempts to pull off the treble after success at Lingfield and Warwick. Well, Vicky is also chasing a fourth win in a row.
3.50 Chepstow – Top Quality Novice Handicap
Plenty of big names line up in a select field of four at the Cazoo Search Drive Smile Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase (3:50).
sail away have to challenge a 298-day layoff for the Dan and Harry Skelton combo, although they were very impressive last time out at Warwick.
Jetoile has been heavily tested for Ryan Potter and should go well, although he’s not over the fences yet, while In Excelsis Deo runs for JP McManus, Harry Fry and Johnny Burke.
1.30 Chepstow – L’Astroboy can take the first game
Evan Williams’ team will be very disappointed if Tolworth is runner-up the astroboy I can’t take the Cazoo Novice Hurdle (1:30) at the local shipyard track.
He is very much the star on this card and would not have been out of place at the Cheltenham Festival earlier this week.
The six-year-old has a handicap mark of 136 and is expected to challenge a £7 penalty for his win at Ffos Las in November.
Sam Thomas trains Tzarmix and has some interest after a good third at Ludlow.
