Perth’s NAP: MINELLA TRUMP | 2:30pm Remembering Tim Hardie Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase | Dom’s Pick
Donald McCain’s charge has not put a foot wrong since his return to chasing back in August and his last three outings have all arrived at this track, with wins in each.
Roi De Dubai is unlikely to feature having ran here on Wednesday and Pay The Piper must concede weight all around on his debut under rules over the larger obstacles, featuring for the first time since March.
The selection has race fitness on his side and the step back in trip doesn’t appear an obvious negative given he was successful over track-and-trip on two occasions prior to his early September victory.
NB: HEAD ON | 4:50pm Centenary Silver Plate Handicap Chase
After wins at Worcester since his two-month break, Ian Williams’s charge looks a better prospect over fences and he should surely have more to offer off a mark of 90.
Liam Harrison claims a handy 5lb off his back to further his wellness at the weights and he’ll clearly have no problem with the trip.
This doesn’t look a particularly deep race and he is a worthy favourite.
