Haydock’s NAP: KILTEALY BRIGGS | 1:50pm Jewson Widnes Novices’ Chase | Dom’s Pick
It could be the day that Jamie Snowden’s gelding finally sheds his maiden tag over fences as he continues his stint as a second-season novice.
He fared better than the bare result on his reappearance at Uttoxeter in October but took a step forward at Aintree next time out, so could land a third career success under Adrian Heskin on his track debut.
Mint Condition was underwhelming on his seasonal reappearance but is much better than that and it won’t surprise to see him take a step forward here.
NB: AMI DEBOIS | 2:50pm Jewson Altrincham Veterans’ Handicap Chase
Without luck in the Grand National, the 11-year-old son of Dream Well should be more in his element in a contest like this and makes plenty of appeal on debut for Fergal O’Brien.
He ran two crackers before his efforts at Aintree and is 3lb lower than his Doncaster second back in February, with a return to this sort of trip sure to suit.
Aso enters this company for the first time and won at this track as a hurdler.
