WITH the Cheltenham Festival done and dusted for another year it's back to normal service on Saturday and Alan has five tips including nap Ms Parfois at Uttoxeter.

Uttoxeter 2.25

Emma Lavelle, still on cloud nine following Paisley Park’s fairytale Cheltenham victory, could saddle another winner courtesy of DE RASHER COUNTER in the novices’ handicap chase.

Her gelding chased home Now McGinty at Chepstow in January, with one of today’s chief rivals Captain Cattistock seven lengths adrift in third. 

Kempton 2.40 

At Kempton, BURROWS EDGE heads the weights in the Matchbook VIP Silver Plate Handicap Hurdle over 2m 5f.

Nicky Henderson’s gelding won two novice hurdles but was off the track for 301 days before returning to action over course and distance last month, beaten a neck by Erick Le Rouge. A 2lb rise seems manageable. 

Uttoxeter 3.0 

With 20 runners declared for the 2m 3f handicap hurdle it may pay to shop around for the best enhanced each-way terms, with DR SANDERSON possessing the profile of a progressive young horse.

He joined Paul Nicholls after winning a bumper for Irish handler Stuart Crawford and Dr Sanderson won a novices’ hurdle at Ffos Las last month. Lorcan Williams claims 5lb. 

Kempton 3.15 

EL TERREMOTO, a faller on both his previous starts, was just run out of it when sent off evens favourite at Kelso earlier this month but that completion should have done his confidence a power of good. 

Uttoxeter 3.35

MS PARFOIS has a touch of class and that may give her the edge over a bunch of mostly exposed stayers in the Marston’s Midlands Grand National at Uttoxeter. 

The eight-year-old hasn’t been seen since running sixth to Sizing Tennessee in the Ladbrokes Trophy Chase (formerly the Hennessy Gold Cup) at Newbury in November.

Ms Parfois ran a stormer at last year’s Cheltenham festival when chasing home Rathvinden in the four-mile National Hunt Chase and she is given the nod over Folsom Blue, representing Gordon Elliott and Davy Russell.

He was an unlucky fourth in the Irish Grand National last April after being badly hampered by Bellshill and although disappointing in the Welsh Grand National, Folsom Blue will be suited by this attritional 4m 2f trip.

    • Shayboy 3 years ago

      Fancy bryony to finish of her week in style

      Milansbar 335 generally available 8/1

    • 3 years ago

      Milansbar was a 10l 2nd last year but had a 7lb claimer on, so only 2lbs better off and not 5 as some would have you believe. He was a legit 8lbs higher when 2nd in 2016 but if he hasnt won it yet… and given the price is in from 12s to 8s i will be looking elsewhete.

      With that being said sentiment does often trump reason in racing and I wouldnt be shocked to see Noel F or Bryony win.

    • Shayboy 3 years ago

      Also done Arthur’s gift and get on the yager eachway and did the combination tricast . Only race I am having a go at today

    300u hopes wishes 3/1
    215f sky full of stars 13/8
    525dr burning ambition 6/5

    • 3 years ago

      i was on TIMOTEO on monday when he cruised home. ITV have just shown he has cruised home again up 7lbs, obviously it will depend where he goes but he is more than capable of winning next time as well, add him to the tracker and as long as he isn’t hit with 15lbs and a big class rise, it looks a good thing, i will try to put him up next time.

    • 3 years ago

      Potters Corner, heavily mentioned here when cruising and then falling late on a few weeks ago, wasnt on myself but maybe a few were.

      400 fontwell, GORING ONE was 14s and is now 9/2 2nd fav with no NRs, i saw it pull up last time but this warrants a small stab.

    • 3 years ago

      the race at fontwell after that, cilaos glace 4/1 last night now even money, last nights 1/4 shot also now 1/1, everything else massive drift.
