Alan Thomson is hoping to deliver a bunch of fives on the bookies on Saturday.

DE RASHER COUNTER (3.35) can prove his class by successfully conceding weight all round in the Midlands Grand National at Uttoxeter.

Emma Lavelle’s gelding ploughed through the mud to land the novices’ handicap chase on this card 12 months ago and his defeat of The Conditional in the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury in late November was made to look rock-solid when the runner-up scored at Cheltenham earlier this week. De Rasher Counter has been given a break since finding Santini and co too classy at Cheltenham in January when he didn’t jump with his usual fluency.

Paul Nicholls has rested Truckers Lodge since his gutsy second to Potters Corner in the Welsh Grand National and a 2lb rise seems very fair.

JP McManus and Barry Geraghty enjoyed a week to remember at Cheltenham and they may not be finished yet as MUSICAL SLAVE (2.25) has leading prospects in the 3m Novices’ Handicap Chase. Philip Hobbs trains the seven-year-old, a three-time winner over hurdles last season, and he despatched Musical Slave to Exeter on New Year’s Day to mop up a first victory over fences.

The trio team up again 35 minutes later with hat-trick seeker Dostal Phil in the 17-runner handicap hurdle but slight preference is for progressive NORDANO (3.00). The four-year-old chased home Goshen at Ascot in January and spread-eagled a large field on a return visit to the track a couple of weeks later, dominating from the front in grand fashion. Bryony Frost is likely to adopt similar aggressive tactics.

At Kempton, Paddy Power sponsor the Silver Plate and Silver Bowl, two difficult handicaps open to horses balloted out at Cheltenham, and DOWNTOWN GETAWAY (2.40) is entitled to go close in the 2m 5f handicap hurdle. Nicky Henderson’s seven-year-old set out to make all the running over course and distance last month and rallied gamely when headed to snatch victory from market rival Palmers Hill. Underfoot conditions should be similar and Downtown Getaway wins the vote over The Butcher Said, at his best on decent ground, and now returning from a short break.

SENSULANO (3.15) should give her backers a decent spin in the highly-competitive 2m 4f Silver Bowl Handicap Chase. Sensulano, a five-time winner for Noel Williams, proved no match for Magic Of Light in a Grade 2 hurdle at Ascot in January, probably finding three miles stretching her to the limit. She will be happier returned to fences over her favoured intermediate trip. The Queen’s Forth Bridge is bidding to repeat last year’s victory and drying ground will help his cause. Paddy Power are paying six places, each-way.

    Garo De Juilley 2.40 ,4th behind Imperial Aura and Simply the Betts over fences who both won at the festival looks decent now. Trainer says unsuited by ground lto over hurdles ,early money has come 33/1 to 20/1 E/W 6 places with Skybet .Anytime Will Do is another who could go well here at a decent price GL

    Yeah i fancy Truckers Lodge but Alan diesnt just put up tips on a gut feeling so? Ew for De Rasher is surely the way in s right hard race to figure.
    GL all 👍

    Database.
    What’s the point in crowing about the fact you identified a horse that lost.
    Cmon mate, well done but that is so unnecessary mate.

  8. Ad 1 year ago

    Great call.

    W2M, are there any horses you do like the look of still to run this weekend?

    • 1 year ago

      what’s left is scraping the barrell.

      RICHARD FAHEY has two at Wolves. ODDS ON OLI (first race) i was on 25s last time when failing, he is back to the scene of his last win, 1lb higher, they may wait one more race before fulling trying but at 8/1, he can carry EW money.

      then he has FURZIG at 7pm, won last time off 93 in a class 2, runs off 92 today in a class 3. had won over 1m4f but down 2-3 furlong today, 3 places looks very sound,

      4/1 for them both to place aint the worst considering the trainer is approaching mustardity.

    • Ad 1 year ago

      Nice one, I’ll have a look at those

  10. recoba 1 year ago

    Some guys or dolls on here need o mind there tights,theyll ladder?
    Same $hite different month.
    I
    Like a tool ive been busy reading the hog talk? An it close to 5pm were i think a great bet is…

    Sabrina…5,00 at 2/1 (i git 9/4 but hey) it looks a great bet

    • 1 year ago

      you should have bet in play on sabrina, you could have got 50/1 mate..

      pure hopefulness has no place here.
