RACE five on day four is the Foxhunters Chase and there's no Victoria Pendleton this year as she is still on crutches.
On The Fringe – Enda Bolger 11-8 10bet
2015 & 2016 winner and gambled on both times. On my trip to Ireland to the Auctions I got to speak to a lot of people in racing from the press to owners to trainers to agents and the vast majority were not convinced this year. I am worried about this horse but the Irish just don’t fancy the horse because of age. Trainer Enda Bolger though is very happy with the way preparations have gone and thinks he is in great shape. Nina Carberry is unable to ride this year but leading amateur Jamie Codd isn’t a bad replacement. On the Fringe has had one prep race and it was a good second to Foxrock.
Ask The Weatherman – Jack Barber 5-1
This was my selection last year until injury ruled him out and he is an exciting horse. Doing most of his racing in point to points I have seen this horse a few times now and I like him a lot. I think he is guaranteed to be placed and a good chance of winning. He had his first race under rules in February when beating Rebel Rebellion pretty comfortably as led all the way and jumped well. I liked him last year and I like him again this year.
Wonderful Charm – Paul Nicholls 4-1 10bet
Katie Walsh will be on as Will Biddick has chosen Ask The Weatherman over this one. I have never been keen on rules horses going hunter chasing but this horse does look like he has adapted well and cannot be ruled out.
