RACEDAY PREVIEW BY PAUL FERGUSON

Ballymoy looks to hold leading claims in the feature Boyne Cup

Weatherbys Hamilton proudly sponsors two of today’s races, beginning with the 2m4f Weatherbys Hamilton Handicap Chase. Despite shouldering top-weight, Evander is arguably the most interesting runner for Cheshire-based trainer Oliver Greenall. The free-going son of Arcadio has won just once from six starts over fences to date, but promises to be suited by a sharp track, and under drying conditions, he might just prove difficult to peg back. Brendan Powell (pictured right) is reunited with the six-year-old and he was on board when Evander ran out a comprehensive winner at Doncaster, form which was advertised last weekend by third home Shut The Box. Nicky Henderson saddles two in the extended 2m5f Weatherbys Hamilton Mares’ Handicap Hurdle, with Nico de Boinville opting to partner Barbados Blue. At home under quick conditions, the lightly-raced seven-year-old should appreciate going up in trip following her recent second at Doncaster.

Yet to finish out of the first two in four starts on good ground, she looks sure to give a good account of herself despite a 5lbs rise, and interestingly, her full-sister Fay Ce Que Voudras runs in the opening contest for trainer Kerry Lee. Of the opposition course-and-distance winner Wynn House, and Precious Eleanor (runner-up over course-and-distance on her penultimate start) are respected. The former drops in grade and coming back in trip should suit Alan King’s novice, who looks more than capable of going well. Elsewhere on the card, the former smart hurdler Ballymoy carries top-weight for Nigel Twiston-Davies and leading owners Simon Munir & Isaac Souede in the feature Boyne Cup. He won a Grade 3 handicap hurdle at Ascot off 147 in January 2019, and is rated just 138 over fences, whilst the concluding hunters’ chase looks a strong contest, with both Chef d’Equipe and San Benedeto rated in the 130s. The latter was a Grade 1 winner on Grand National day four years ago.

PLAY SMARTER

Race Summary: LOST IN MONTMARTRE has shown a fairly useful level of form over hurdles in France, so, with her new yard going well at present, she looks the one to beat. Subway Surf has been a touch underwhelming in 2 runs this season, but still has to be respected, along with hurdling-newcomer Monete.

Race Summary: This looks easier than the handicaps THE BEES KNEES has run well in on his last 2 starts so he gets the nod to land a third success of the campaign. The unexposed Dobryn looks the obvious danger, although Caid du Lin is also well treated if a return to hurdles sparks an upturn in his fortunes.

Race Summary: BALLYMOY has yet to scale the same heights over fences as he did as a hurdler, yet his consistency is hard to knock and, on the back of a facile success in a Catterick novice recently, he’s fancied to make a bold bid to get off the mark in a handicap in this sphere. Town Parks and Cuban Pete are fancied to give him most to think about.

Race Summary: This could be the day when PRECIOUS ELEANOR gets her head in front. She certainly deserves to do so, having hit the crossbar on 3 of her last 4 starts, and the drying ground is no bad thing where this 6-y-o is concerned. Apparent Nicky Henderson first-string, Barbados Blue, may offer the greatest resistance.
