Runner By Runner Guide


CYRNAME 

Trainer: Paul Nicholls
Jockey: Harry Cobden
Odds: 13/8
Form: 4/3711-1
Comments: “Progressed into a top class chaser in his last few outings culminating with a win in the Grade 2 Christy Chase last month at Ascot, beating Altior in pretty comfortable fashion. Obvious massive player here and rightfully at the top of the betting, Cobden chooses him over last year’s winner and if getting the trip will be tough to peg back.”

LOSTINTRANSLATION

Trainer: Colin Tizzard
Jockey: Robbie Power
Odds: 15/8
Form: 221-11
Comments: “Winner of the Grade 1 Mildmay Chase at Aintree on final outing of the season last term. Back to back wins this term including an impressive display when winning the Betfair Chase the last day at Haydock. Looks to be more potentially better suited to this trip than most here and if in the same form as of late should be bang there here.”

CLAN DES OBEAUX

Trainer: Paul Nicholls
Jockey: Sam Twiston-Davies
Odds: 5/1
Form: 1152-2
Comments: “Won last year’s renewal of the race when travelling powerfully to get the better of Thistlecrack, arguably a few questions about the strength of the form of that race though. He’s not quite been able to back it up either with a few slightly below par runs since and has been deserted by Cobden. Certainly not ruled out though and has every chance of playing a part if at his best.”

FOOTPAD

Trainer: Willie Mullins
Jockey: Barry Geraghty
Odds: 10/1
Form: /F28-1
Comments: “2018 Arkle winner who somewhat lost his way last season when tried against the older horses at the top-level. Returned to form last month in a Listed Chase when beating Mala Beach by the best part of 10 lengths, has form over a number of trips including this one when over hurdles and could be somewhat of a dark horse here for his top connections.”
Runner Jacket

THISTLECRACK

Trainer: Colin Tizzard
Jockey: Tom Scudamore
Odds: 16/1
Form: 32P-2
Comments: “Won this race back in 2016 when a Novice and ran a mighty race last year when second to Clan Des Obeaux. Ran another impressive race when last seen in a Graded hurdle at Newbury behind Paisley Park and whilst he may be up against it trying to get the better of the younger horses at the top of the market here, he’s every chance of running a solid race again.”
Runner Jacket

ASO

Trainer: Venetia Williams
Jockey: Charlie Deutsch
Odds: 66/1
Form: 162-35
Comments: “Smart chaser who’s capable of holding his own in top company, this looks tough though and hasn’t been quite at his best so far this season. Looks up against it here and this is reflected in his price.”
