There’s a similar scenario (see 12.15 tip) in this 2m novices chase with the Stuart Edmonds-trained CLONACOOL taken to beat a couple of better fancied rivals from bigger yards. Indeed, Anthony Honeyball’s Regal Encore has been priced up a full point shorter and I simply can’t have him on his chase efforts so far – he was well beaten on his first two starts and fell at Ascot last time. He’s also likely to find two miles round here in the sharp side with his last hurdles win coming over 2m7f at Exeter. I’ve got far more respect for Zamdy Man who was the best of these over hurdles but has had his physical problems and has not been seen out for over a year.

Fitness won’t be an issue for the selection as he’s had three runs over hurdles this term, winning on the first of those (and for the fourth time overall) at Market Rasen in September, and is now on a mark of 136 in that sphere. He disappointed at Ascot last time but has schooled well over fences at home according to his trainer, who singled him out in a Stable Tour as potentially a “smart two-mile novice.” He’ll need to be to make a winning start to his chase career against today’s rivals, but he should be a value price and I rate his jockey Joshua Moore, who has a healthy 18% strike rate at the track.
