4.50 Kim Muir Amateur Riders’ Handicap Chase

Thursday 18 March | Age: 5yo+ | Prize: £70,000

This is race bears the name of Kim Muir, a cavalry officer who died during World War II.

Voice of Value's Tips

This looks to be a reasonable renewal of this race with a few near the top of the market that are in decent form and capable of improvement.  Deise Aba and Hold The Note are probably the two that jump out as obvious contenders but the prices aren't appealing.

There are two that I like, one of which I am very keen on. The lesser of the two is KILFILUM CROSS who was a good second last year at the festival to Milan Native in this race and has been honking since then.

Will the return to this course spark some life back into him off a 3lb lower mark? Has he been campaigned with this race in mind or is he just regressive? It's hard to say but I think he is worth a small each way at decent odds with extra places on offer.

The main pick for the race though is Kerry Lee's STORM CONTROL who is a course and distance winner having won twice here this season in November and December.

He is a bold jumping front runner which admittedly is a tricky thing to do round here but if you needed any encouragement you just have to watch Vintage Clouds' win on Tuesday where he made virtually all over a similar distance.

Storm Control is an improving horse who I think can give a very good account of himself here and hopefully show them all a clean pair of heels.  He is too big a price not to get involved.

Alan Thomson's Tips

This 3m 2f handicap chase isn’t for the faint-hearted. Gordon Elliott’s Milan Native landed this prize 12 months ago and the stable’s Mount Ida is respected on the back of her second to smart Colreevy in a Grade 2 contest at Thurles at the end of January. 

HOLD THE NOTE (8) finished an excellent third to Imperial Aura and Tuesday’s winner Galvin in the novices’ handicap chase here 12 months ago and returned from a wind procedure at Newbury last month, chasing home hot favourite Enrilo.

Jonjo O’Neill’s long-range fancy Time To Get Up sidesteps this event but the yard saddles Exeter winner Cobolobo, a little out of his depth behind Captain Chaos at Ascot 26 days ago. The nine-year-old will feel more at home in this company.

Shantou Flyer is out to further boost his impressive Festival record. Beaten in a photo finish by Coo Star Sivola in the 2018 Ultima Handicap Chase, he has been placed in the last two renewals of the Foxhunters’ Chase.

Plan Of Attack, fourth in last  year’s Kim Muir, hasn’t clicked this campaign but is the type to bounce back to form in a jiffy. Deise Aba was one place behind Plan of Attack in the Kim Muir, becoming outpaced from the home bend, and has been well found in the market.
