So much for the new flat season, we’ve got four jumps meetings this afternoon and it’s fairly competitive stuff, especially up at Perth.

The day’s feature 2m4f handicap chase (4.00pm) has attracted a field of 10 and while Willie Mullins’ Tennis Cap is likely to go off favourite, he doesn’t look particularly well treated. I’d much rather take a chance on the fitness of Mick Easterby’s SHADOWS LENGTHEN, a smart chaser on his day who has won five of his 18 starts and is well handicapped on a mark just 1lb higher than his last winning one.

The ten-year-old hasn’t been seen out since October but he’s likely had this valuable prize on his agenda for a good while and his veteran trainer could not be in better form, sending out eight winners and umpteen places from his North Yorkshire base in the past fortnight. Most have come on the flat, admittedly, but the stable has done well with the few jumpers that have run at this track.
