13:30 (Chepstow) L’Astroboy

L’Astroboy can make a successful move forward as he brings the Class 1 form of the Cazoo Novices’ Hurdle to the table in Chepstow.

The six year old put on a superb show at the Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown when he was last seen, beaten by two and a half lengths by Tahmuras, a horse he had actually beaten in his only record start.

Considering this was only his second hurdle start and third appearance overall, it was a commendable run and although Tahmuras was beaten well in Tuesday’s Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at Cheltenham, form still looks pretty strong.

Nemean Lion and Colonel Harry, who finished third and fourth, have since battled for the finish in a Grade Two at Kelso, while fifth-placed Authorized Speed ​​won a rookie event.

L’Astroboy climbs almost half a mile this weekend but judging by how he’s stayed at Sandown the distance sure seems to fit.

14:40 (Chepstow) Shomen Uchi

Shomen Uchi narrowly lost on his first attempt over obstacles and has to evaluate a leading competitor in the Cazoo Maiden Hurdle.

Winner of one of his three bumpers, Shomen Uchi, with his last start in this sphere earning a sixth place finish in an Aintree Grade Two, was struck in the head at Hereford while embarking on a hurdling career before Christmas.

He was a bit excited at just under two and a half miles and it’s easy to see why Sam Thomas chose to go just under three miles now as he’s going on well.

Shomen Uchi did his best in test conditions, maybe that’s why he hasn’t been seen since that run in December.

15:50 (Chepstow) In Excelsis deodorant

At Excelsis, Deo was disappointed after being sent off as a favorite on his last outing, but makes up for it in the Cazoo Search Drive Smile Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase.

At Excelsis, Deo was a winner in France before joining Harry Fry last year. Winning for the yard on his debut, he looked like a decent prospect to finish.

Although no excuses were offered in the immediate aftermath, in what appears to be a slightly less competitive heat, In Excelsis Deo should not be written off.

13.50 (Carlisle) Tommy’s Oscar

Tommy’s Oscar is able to defy top weight at the Rockcliffe Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase in Carlisle.

The eight-year-old hasn’t been quite in the same lustrous form this season as he was last term, but he secured a deserved second-rate win last time out at Doncaster when he overturned favorite Boothill.

He jumped for fun and with minimal effort shot five and a half lengths to win despite seemingly having something left on his hand.

The handicapper actually dropped him 1 pound for that performance, and while conditions may not be quite ideal, Tommy’s Oscar still looks like it’s class.

15.35 (Carlisle) Ramses de Teillee

Ramses De Teillee is the pick in the Aglionby Veterans’ Handicap Chase.

Winner of one of those events at Warwick in November, he finished second to Wishing And Hoping in the 2022 final at Sandown before once again having to settle for a place at Exeter when he finished a well-beaten third behind Musical Slave.

He was shed 1 pound after that run, but his 144 mark still looks viable based on his effort before last, especially considering the Carlisle ground could suit him better.

CARLISLE: 1.50 Tommy’s Oscar, 2.25 Haveanothergoflo, 3.00 Blazing Port, 3.35 Ramses De Teillee, 4.10 Dubai Days, 4.45 Big Blue Moon, 5.20 Late Romantic.
