racingtv.com Novices' Handicap Chase (GBB Race)
Class 4 | 2m 54y | Good (Good to Firm in places) | 4 Runners | Turf
Off time: 14:20 | Winning time: 3m 58.5s
Third success in 2m handicap hurdles when striking at Southwell under this rider last month. Held in first-time cheekpieces at Uttoxeter next time and more needed now sent chasing.
Hurdles winner who showed plenty in 5 runs over fences at up to 20f last season. Gone well fresh and looks set for a big run.
Fair winning hurdler at 2m. Caught the eye in a big way on chase debut at Plumpton (19.8f) when last seen, not knocked about and finishing with running left despite losing shoe. Could improve plenty.
Fairly useful handicap hurdler who won twice at Leicester over 2m in 2018/19. Tricky to catch right but no reason why he won't make up into just as good a chaser. First run for 7 months.
Purple King (85/40), Jaboticaba (9/4), Falcon Sun (5/2), Statuario (11/4), Fairway Freddy (5/1), Le Grand Fromage (8/1)
FAIRWAY FREDDY was a big eye-catcher on his first go over fences at Plumpton when last seen, not knocked about and finishing with running left despite losing a shoe. He looks the type who could do vastly better in this sphere and given his yard can ready one after an absence he's taken to make a winning return. Jaboticaba is feared most ahead of Le Grand Fromage.
