Entries for Agetur Kingmaker Chase

Blog 5th February 2020 Warwick

With a total of 140 entries for The Agetur Kingmaker Chase Day, it is set to be an exciting contest to gain the crown.

The Join Racing TV Now Novices’ Hurdle (Class 4) kick starts the day with a total of 30 entries from the likes of Nicky Henderson, local trainers Charlie Longsdon and Dan Skelton.

Second race of the day has a total of 22 horses entered with the view of tackling the two mile Handicap Hurdle.

The feature race of the day is the Agetur Kingmaker Chase which last year saw it moved to Sandown Park, where Glen Forsa claimed the title for trainer Mick Channon and jockey Jonathan Burke.

This year’s entries are made up of eight horses competing to take home the crown and prize money of over £20,000. Local trainer Dan Skelton entered Nube Negra, a six year old gelding who last visited Warwick in October claimed The Charlie Poste Beginners' Chase over 2m 54yds.

Rouge Vif is looking to improve on a recent performance at Kempton in December, which saw the Harry Whittington trained gelding return after Wind Surgery to place second.

Precious Cargo for Nicky Henderson will be out looking for a second win of the season, following a festive win in December at Haydock and second at Newbury in January. Fanion D’Estruval trained by Venetia Williams will also be chasing a second win of the season.

Five-year-old Torpillo will be looking to continue the form from 2019 with three wins, the last being at Warwick in November.

There certainly is no mystery about Nicky Henderson’s intentions for Champagne Mystery following a win at Aintree early on in the season. The six year old championed by Nico De Boinville will be looking for an improvement in form for owner Trevor Hemmings.

A change of trainer to Nick Williams on the 9th January has seemed to work a trick with the first win for seven year old Moonlighter since November 2018. 

Djingle will be looking to improve on the last few outings for trainer John Queally.

The thrilling seven race card is set to be exciting with horses and trainers using it as a stepping stone as they attempt to secure a place in history at The Festival™ presented by Magners at Cheltenham and the Randox Health Grand National at Aintree later in the year.
