Ben Linfoot heads to the Devon National at Exeter for the Sporting Life Daily Nap, with an impressive last-time out winner taken to go in again.
Sporting Life Daily Nap, February 22
A chance is taken on JEPECK in the Healthy Pets Devon National Handicap Chase at Exeter on Friday.
The 10-year-old improved massively for his first start for Anthony Honeyball last time, landing a monster gamble in the process despite jumping markedly to his right throughout.
A 17lb hike in the weights for that win was not in any way harsh considering his dominance and the form has been franked since with the second and third winning next time out despite being beaten 12 and 40 lengths respectively.
Third in the Devon National last year off a much lower mark when trained by Kayley Woollacott, it is to be hoped that the return to a right-handed track can see him give much less ground away at his fences than he did at Ffos Las last time.
If it does he's a major player, even off his new rating, the switch in stables seemingly sparking a huge improvement in the 10-year-old.
