Compelling Contest

Very little of appeal so far this week from the three cards that survived the weather.

Just Huntingdon for us today. The biggest prize of the day is for the Juvenile Hurdle at 2.50. The market for this Class 2 event being dominated by the long odds-on Sceau Royal, who won his Triumph Hurdle trial quite decisively at Cheltenham last month.

The 3.20 looks interesting with current favourite Three Faces West making his chase debut. Whilst second in, Ubak, has a second run over the bigger obstacles after a good debut in November.

Following his surprise win at Aintree Gary Moore described him as ‘a three-mile chase in the making.’

My tissue prices for the race are:

9/4 Three Faces West

4/1 Ubak

9/2 L’Unique

9/2 Buckhorn Timothy

6/1 Ballyboley

As you can see, it is a tight little handicap that should prove an compelling contest.

Just the two turf meetings for us tomorrow, with Channel 4 showing three races from both Warwick and Wetherby, plus one from the All Weather at Chelmsford.

The ground for both meetings of interest is currently reported as heavy.

Will be putting plenty of work in and back tomorrow morning with a preview.
