Enjoy Your Life made me enjoy my Sunday as Charlie Deutsch was superb again. He caressed this horse into contention, the horse didn't miss a single fence and he brought him into the race at the right time and the horse had plenty left, which was always a concern at 3m as he wasn't proven at the trip but his jumping allowed him to have stamina in reserve.
Broomfield Present raced how Broomfield Present races, and that is lazily. He is a big lazy horse, always has been and always will be, hence why he has the visor on to keep him interested. David Bass had to keep niggling away at him, but I never felt like it was game over, even when he was headed turning for home I thought he'd keep finding. He was eventually brought down by the Skelton faller and that put an end to his race, and probably brought an end to me backing him in the future.
Kempton 3:05 – Mullinaree 9/2 (1pt, WilliamHill)
With the recent questioning into Milton Harris, his horses have had to move stables and Mullinaree is currently with Syd Hosie. This horse is making his chase debut today, and I think he is worth a chance.
There are questions to be answered from every horse in the race, including the jumping over fences for my selection, but I know he'll stay the trip, he will be racefit and he goes on any ground, so with him having a PTP background which looks decent I think he is worth a shot.
He wasn't always fluent over hurdles, so that does put doubt into your mind on whether he'll handle fences, but it might've been that he didn't respect the small obstacles and he will be much better over fences, which is often the case for a lot of PTP horses. He was decent over hurdles, racking up four wins along the way and he's beaten some decent handicappers on that journey. If he takes to fences then a mark of 127 is definitely within reach, especially in a race like today where I think those towards the head of the market aren't suited by today's trip or they won't like the predicted ground with some fairly heavy rain expecting to land in the early hours of Monday. Before Midnight is interesting with him dropping in class off a low handicap mark, but he didn't look like a stayer for this trip and at the age of 10 he'll find easier races to win. Gloire D'Athon is a quirky horse and Aidan Coleman managed to get a tune out of him on many occasions, so with him still being injured I think having anyone else in the saddle is a big negative, plus his mark looks of high side.
Mullinaree was 3rd on his only PTP start which was behind Ginto and Since Day One. The former was a very respected horse when he was trained by Gordon Elliott, but he sadly lost his life. The latter has turned into a very good handicapper for Donald McCain and is currently rated 137 over fences. Garincha was behind Mullinaree and he has won a couple of races over fences and is rated in the 120s.
Ludlow 12:35 – Imperial Saint 9/2 (1pt)
Going against a Venetia Williams horse is not the ideal situation, especially as that stable has given us plenty of winners over the last 14 days or so, but I don't think the form of their runner is particularly strong and I do think Imperial Saint is good value for this race on hurdles debut.
This is a big field for a maiden hurdle, maxing out the capacity of 16 runners, but I can't see many getting involved. There are a few in this race with okay bumper and hurdles form, but nothing outstanding, and then you have some decent flat handicappers transitioning over, but I just thought if Imperial Saint was ready to fire first time out over rules, he could be the best horse in this race at this moment in time.
He was PTP horse and was bought for £40,000 after he won on his final start. It's nice backing horses that have a PTP background as it shows they have the aptitude to jump an obstacle, but also you can get some decent form from that. He beat a horse called Aughafatten who won on his next PTP and has since won two bumper races, recording RPRs of 115 and 114, which are fairly decent figures for a bumper, so he clearly has beaten a good horse by 13L. There are winners in the pedigree of Imperial Saint, all based in France but two have seen RPRs in the 120s.
