Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate
- Handicap chase over fences
- 2 miles 5 furlongs
- Competitive chase with a classy field
He definitely has a few pounds in hand over most of these and whilst there might be one or two who are even better handicapped I am quite happy going with John’s Spirit each way, as unimaginative as it may seem. Jonjo nearly managed to pull off a similar feat with Holywell earlier in the week which suggests to me that he will have John’s Spirit primed for action too.
An alternative at a slightly bigger price is FINGAL BAY who has a great record here, is versatile groundwise and if they don’t run him off his feet at the start with a strong pace he will be staying on up the hill at the end. Richard Johnson is an added bonus in the saddle.
