JLT Novices’ Chase

 Modus

Modus

St Patrick’s Day kicks off with a wide open race. Mick thinks that if Monalee (3-1) runs he wins, but he’s 95% certain he’ll run in the RSA instead. Both Mick and Dickie like Paul Nicholls’ Modus (13-2). Whilst Dickie, Charlie and Luke fancy the chances of Terrefort (6-1) who is undefeated since joining Nicky Henderson’s Seven Barrows yard.

Ryanair Chase

A race dominated by Willie Mullins in recent years with Vautour and current market leader Un de Sceaux (13-8). However, our panel don’t think he’s a banker bet. Mick and Luke fancy Waiting Patiently, especially if the ground stays soft. Longsdon recommends taking an each way punt on Cloudy Dream at 10-1 whilst host Esdaile has tipped Balko des Flos (5-1) a lot in his City AM column (although he is growing more and more concerned by the prospect of heavy going).

Stayers Hurdle

 Sam Spinner leads the field

Sam Spinner leads the field

Despite Jessica Harrington’s Supasundae heading the market at 10-3, the 8 year old hardly got a mention. Johnson and Longsdon made a good case for Jedd O’Keefe’s star Sam Spinner (9-2) who they feel would be favourite were he trained by a more established name. Tarr likes the look of La bague au Roi (12-1) but has doubts around his participation. Esdaile thinks the each way value is Unowhatimeanharry (11-1), whilst Mick caused much amusement in the room with his selection L’ami Serge (10-1).

Other Races

 Mares Novices' Hurdle favourite - Laurina

Mares Novices' Hurdle favourite - Laurina

In terms of selections for the other races on Day 3, Dickie Johnson likes his chances onboard Louis Vac Pouch (9-1) in the Pertemps Handicap Hurdle. Longsdon thinks that the Mcmanus horses have been well handicapped in the same race (Glenloe 8-1 & The Organist 14-1). Charlie also thinks his horse Pendra could go well yet again in the Kim Muir Handicap Chase. Luke Tarr rates the chances of Mister Whittaker (14-1) in the Brown Advisory Plate and the entire panel think that the Mares Novices’ Hurdle is already decided, with Laurina (5-6) picked to win.
