CLARENCE HOUSE CHASE – 20th January
Un De Sceaux (8/15) looks like he will be bidding to retain the crown he has held for the last two years. The forecast soft ground will suit this dual Cheltenham Festival winner and as the betting suggests, he is the one to beat. Brain Power (11/4) has already been well backed this week but with only two starts over fences under his belt, his jumping will be put to the test in open company here.
COTSWOLD CHASE – 27th January
Bristol De Mai annihilated the field at Haydock Park earlier this season and was subsequently found to be suffering from an ulcer after his disappointing run in the King George on Boxing Day. This race is his next intended target, and should he show up, connections will be hoping he can get back to winning ways. Potential opposition includes the likes of Whisper, American and Saphir Du Rheu. All of which could give Bristol De Mai plenty to think about if they turn up in the race.
BETFAIR HURDLE – 10th February
A race which often attracts a large field and is usually won by an improving horse on its way to better things. Zarkandar, My Tent Or Yours and Ballyandy are recent winners of the race and this year could be another great renewal. A couple to keep an eye on at this stage are High Bridge (14/1) and Defi Du Seuil (16/1). High Bridge has some decent handicap form this season, following on his progression from his novice season. Defi Du Seuil was the standout juvenile last season with victories at both the Cheltenham and Aintree Festivals. His return at Ascot before Christmas was extremely disappointing but Philip Hobbs has his yard in much better form now and this horse could still be a Champion Hurdle contender.
