Saturday’s Lucky 15
1.30 Kempton – On The Slopes
This horse will very popular today for Chris Gordon once people look through his form. On his penultimate start the six-year-old went to Cheltenham and finished third behind Simply The Betts & Imperial Aura. Those horses went on to win at the Cheltenham Festival this week and boosted that piece of form. After that On The Slopes went to Kempton and was a comfortable winner. This race doesn’t look too strong for the grade and the son of Librettist will likely have an easy lead which is his normal running style. For me he’s my strongest fancy on the day.
2.05 Kempton – McFabulous
This race has been rearranged from Sandown Imperial Cup meeting last week and has tended to be a graveyard for favourites in recent years. However McFabulous who is likely to be the jolly looks to have a strong chance.Further Paul Nicholls was the last trainer to train the favourite with Red Harbour in 2010. The six-year-old was always a promising bumper horse winning a Grade 2 but had failed to live up to expectations over hurdles. On the other hand his latest win at Market Rasen was a real confidence booster and he was impressive beating some nice types. His mark of 132 looks very generous and he could easily have 10lbs in hand. I suspect he could be hard to beat.
3.00 Uttoxeter – Remastered
This horse has been suggesting that he’s ready to win a nice handicap and today could be his day for David Pipe. The seven-year-old finished a creditable third on very testing ground at Doncaster over a trip that was slightly too far as travelled nicely into that race so therefore dropping back in trip looks ideal. Going back further through his form he finished second to Potters Corner at Chepstow who went on to win the Welsh National. For me he’s on a workable handicap rating and expect him to make the frame.
3.35 Uttoxeter – Truckers Lodge
It seems that Paul Nicholls has had this race in mind for Truckers Lodge all season after he finished second in the Welsh National .This eight-year-old is very unexposed over staying trips and has plenty of miles left to exploit. For his latest effort he was only raised 2lbs and I think that looks very fair. Furthermore Lorcan Williams is booked and has a good relationship with him and is able to claim a handy 3lbs. For me he’s got a solid profile for the Midlands National.
