Peter Marsh Chase Day is Haydock Park’s first raceday of the year and in the past has produced several fine winners at the Cheltenham Festival. Will this year be the same? The first race is a Grade 2 Novices’ Chase at 12:55pm with the Peter Marsh Handicap Chase the feature race at 2:40pm.
The going as of Thursday is heavy, with more rain (and snow) forecast.
1 – Allart
2 – Silver Hallmark
Comment: Nicky Henderson’s Allart won readily on his seasonal debut in a similar event at Ascot in December and should find his way into the winner’s enclosure again. Silver Hallmark was a close second at Exeter last time and another good run can be expected.
1 – Llandinabo Lad
2 – Minella Drama
Comment: Course and distance winner Llandinabo Lad ran a decent second at Ascot last month and should go one better today. Minella Drama comes here after easy wins at Sedgefield and Bangor but was behind the selection when second at Bangor in October.
1 – Hijack
2 – Milvale
Comment: Hijack was running on late in heavy conditions when finishing a close third at Haydock last time out and the extra half mile should suit. Milvale has winning form on heavy ground and ran a decent fourth at Kelso last month.
1 – Sam’s Adventure
2 – Royale Pagaille
Comment: Sam’s Adventure won the Tommy Whittle Chase over course and distance in similar conditions last time out and is selected to win round Haydock again. Royale Pagaille comes here in good heart after wins at Kempton and Haydock and another good run can be expected.
1 – Ballyandy
2 – Buveur D’Air
Comment: Last year’s winner Ballyandy has been running well this season without getting his head in front, that should change today. The legendary 2-time Champion Hurdle winner Buveur D’Air returns after a long injury absence and could need the run.
1 – Destined To Shine
2 – Black Pirate
Comment: Destined To Shine ran a good second over course and distance last time out and is tipped to go one better today. Black Pirate has winning form on heavy going and should come on for his seasonal debut when third at Newcastle last month.
1 – Nefyn Point
2 – Imperial Acolyte
Comment: Nefyn Point ran a good second on heavy ground at Carlisle last time out and another good run is expected. Imperial Acolyte has risen 10lb in the weights after a comfortable win at Ffos Las in November and could run the selection close.
