We are looking for a hat-trick of wins for our racing trixie.
We back Mr Snoozy in the first race at Aintree.
We’ll be honest, we love an afternoon nap as long as we are raring to go for the evening.
Mark Walford will have Mr Snoozy revved up for this one. Walford is firing at a 33% win strike rate so his yard seem in good nick.
Mr Snoozy won last time out and has only be raised 2lbs for that. That 2lb rise should be negated by the drop in class in this. He has won off higher and, off this weight, several times.
We think he is weighted to go well for a yard in form. We are expecting a big run at a big price here.
Chief Justice is as unpredictable as they come.
Being a juvenile hurdle the line-up is full of inexperienced hurdlers. Chief Justice makes his hurdling debut for a yard known for its flat runners. Richard Fahey runs one of the biggest yards in the UK and it is interesting he sends this one hurdling.
From a seven race career he has refused to race twice. However, that would have been from the stalls and we are hopeful that the walk-in start over jumps will get our boy going.
If this was a flat race we would still consider backing our selection – we have him way ahead of the others. If he translates his flat form to this he should win.
He was good enough to be entered, he refused to race, for a group three flat race at York. Also, he has recorded a second place at class three level.
In our eyes, if he starts – he should win.
Melody Of Scotland is an interesting recruit to the Alan King stable. Jockey Barry Geraghty will be donning the famous green and yellow stripes of JP McManus.
We think this is a modest race and we like the look of Melody Of Scotland’s French form. He is yet to run in the UK and has run twice over the other-side of the channel.
He was second on debut and then gained a victory second time out.
Interestingly, it is his second place finish that catches the eye the most. That day he lost to Ex Fan Des Sixties who has recorded some impressive performances this summer in France. That includes narrowly missing out on a Group three chase race.
We think that is pretty strong form and with King’s yard having recent winners – we are hoping for a big performance.
