4:50pm Uttoxeter Reirse Ryan Mares' Handicap Chase (Qualifier For The Hereford Mares' Handicap Chase Series) (Class 4) 2m4f



Grania O’Malley has dropped ten pounds down the ratings after just two starts over the larger obstacles and I’d be surprise if Evan Williams persisted with chasing for too much longer. Postbridge has been running well in the point-to-point sphere of late, but hasn’t won a race under rules since April 2017 and will have to step up markedly to get involved.

Olly Murphy has chosen Uttoxeter to hand Shakadame his stable debut and this former French and Irish-based chaser has to be respected. However, whenever John McConnell’s name appears on a British race card you better sit up and take note and PAT’S PEARL has to be the one to beat here.

This eight-year-old son of Kalanisi managed just one victory in 17 starts over the smaller obstacles. In contrast, Pat’s Pearl needed just one look at fences to get off the mark, grinding out a narrow victory after making a significant error at the second-last.

McConnell boasts a near 50% strike rate with his runners here in England over the past three years. Sean Bowen, while one of the star jockeys of last season, hasn’t been in the winners’ circle all that often since the new campaign kicked off, but he’s a classy jockey who will give this Irish raider a confident ride.
