SANDOWN'S Henry VIII Novices’ Chase is a cracking little contest featuring six classy embryo jumpers. ALLMANKIND (1.50), still only a four-year-old, was a very smart novice hurdler last season and was most impressive when making a winning start over the larger obstacles at Warwick.

Trainer Dan Skelton has hailed him a possible future star but this is an acid test, with the likes of useful Hitman, Eldorado Allen and Ga Law in opposition.

In the two-mile handicap hurdle, hot favourite Mister Coffey bids to follow-up his eye-catching course and distance victory in early November. The assessor has been fairly penal, imposing a 10lb hike, and it may be too early writing off SOLO (3.35).

He may have been over-rated after plundering last season’s Adonis Hurdle at Kempton in February, making no show a few weeks later when well-touted at Cheltenham. The ground was on the quick side for his return to action in the Elite Hurdle at Wincanton but Solo wasn’t disgraced in taking fourth spot behind classy Sceau Royal. He was keen early that day and may settle better on this slower surface now dropped into handicap company.

There is some top-notch action at Liverpool where WALK IN THE MILL (1.30) can further underline his love affair with Aintree by bagging a historic third William Hill Becher Chase.

Cheek-pieces were applied last year and Walk In The Mill responded positively, drawing clear of re-opposing Kimberlite Candy. The headgear is back on for the first time since and Walk In The Mill will have tightened up from a recent outing behind Regal Encore at Ascot.

Besides his two course and distance victories, the gelding ran fourth in the 2019 Grand National and he should get his preferred soft ground, with rain forecast on Merseyside.

Kimberlite Candy comes here fresh and can go well for in-form Tom Lacey. Popular grey Ramses De Teillee prevailed in a ding-dong battle with Yala Enki at Cheltenham’s big November meeting and rain would aid his cause. He never looked happy in this year’s Grand National, eventually being pulled up after becoming outpaced on the drying ground. Yala Enki is another mud-lover but 11st 12lb is a welter burden tackling the Aintree fences for the first time.

Fifteen runners are declared but most firms are offering four places each-way.

    The horse I’ve been waiting for is out tonight in the 6.30 at Wolverhampton. Steelriver is the horse, it was so unlucky last time, blocked in and when it did get out it was finishing like a train only to be checked in its run, ended up beaten two heads, a nose and half a length. The C&D winner is currently trading at 12/1 with Skybet.

    • dazzman1979 1 month ago

      Worth a go at a good e/w price I reckon

    1255a MINT CONDITION 0.5pt ew 5/1 – admittedly such a short price in a card like this isn’t advisable but I will chance, up another 5lbs but has been going well on a hattrick, enjoys the ground, you can also get 5/4 for top 3. Gina Andrews and Pam Sly share two favs at Wetherby, in the 14:12 FRANSHAM 2/1 won lto and apprentice takes 60% of the rise away. Given top weight and Stainsby Girl looks ok, will just risk 0.5pts at 2/1. At 1535s Nickolson 12/1 0.5pts ew 4 places, very lightly raced, tried in listed company, beaten plenty of winners, at the price, no qualms with backing.

    1500s Doing Fine 7/1 0.5pt ew 3 places – heart ruling my head here, “won” this race last year, i had 25 ew on at 16/1, a horse fell half way though, the race was void but jockeys didn’t realise and carried on. i watched as Doing Fine crept through the field and did the business, 45 minutes later the race was void. It looks competitive today and the price is much shorter, given betfair offer 3 places, I will just about be willing to chance. Robbie Dunne was on last year, he is now on the fav (he has won for Williams recently but her stable jock steps off and is elsewhere) who beat us by 12l lto, we have a 19lb weight pull and although I liked Classic Ben LTO, i will just about be willing to chance my selection given betfair are offering 3 places.

    A speculative dart will be thrown early, 1220a THE PADDY PIE 16/1 4 places. 0.25pt ew

    • Mr. Bean123 1 month ago

    FLYING ANGEL in the 15:15A won over CD this time last year by 8 lengths, he is 5lbs lower today, he’s 11/1 for 6 place on sky, 12/1 for 5 places most other firms. beau bay beat it in this race last year by 6 and is a couple better off, VOV put him up and he’s twice the price, perhaps the race came a little quickly after his more appealing win, i will be on at 12s.

    • Mr. Bean123 1 month ago

      Nice 20ew there
      Profit day today!!

    • insider 1 month ago

      cheers but it was the big VOV who just binked one in, mine places at 12s which is all i could’ve hoped for, very pleased DOING FINE won after last year’s absolute disaster, 15/2 winner and a 5/2 winner makes it a decent day with one to run. BOL
