With less than a month to go until the Cheltenham Festival, punters could be forgiven for keeping their powder dry but with terrific cards from Ascot (starting at 1.15) and Haydock (1.30) to warm us up we’re looking ahead to a super weekend.
Ascot’s feature novice chase at 1.50 allows us to see superstar lady jockey Bryony Frost renew her partnership with BLACK CORTON who should go close, whilst the biggest race of the day at the Berkshire track (at 3.35) can see WAITING PATIENTLY extend his winning run for in-form Ruth Jefferson.
Up at Haydock it is Grand National Trials day but before the big one at 3.15 we have the chance to back AGRAPART once again for Lizzie Kelly and Nick Williams.
He keeps being overlooked and whilst the market might not make that mistake again we can expect another fine performance.
At 3.15 all eyes will be on the hotly fancied BLAKLION who is expected to reaffirm his credentials for a tilt at the Grand National in a couple of months by taking this race in his stride.
Whilst Ascot and Haydock share top billing, don’t forget that EVERY UK race is set to be shown on Reality Races and an 8-race afternoon card at Lingfield (on the all-weather) carries the 3.30 where Kevin Ryan’s NAUTICAL HAVEN can improve on a couple of runner-up finishes having hit the crossbar lately.
That’s not all, with 7 jumps races from Wincanton in the afternoon giving way to some Saturday evening action (starting 5.45) at Kempton on the polytrack.
If you’ve still got energy left for Sunday they’re off at Market Rasen (starting 2.10) and over in Ffos Las (2.30) where a brilliant handicap chase at 4.10 can go the way of HORATIO HORNBLOWER for Nick Williams.
Remember, whoever you fancy and however you bet, you can enjoy all the top action with us at Reality Races!
