Stratford’s NAP: KAP AUTEUIL | 2:05pm Charlie Longsdon Racing Handicap Chase | Dom’s Pick

With the form of his Market Rasen win back in March working out well, it could be worth taking a chance on Toby Lawes’s gelding to keep up the solid run of form he showed at the backend of last season here.

He won at this track before going onto score under a double penalty in Lincolnshire and has already made into a far better chaser than hurdler in his 6-race career over the larger obstacles to date.

He’s beaten subsequent winners aplenty and therefore looks off a fair mark back in a handicap.

NB: MAKKA PAKKA | 12:55pm Charlotte Cole Memorial Handicap Chase

There could be plenty of improvement left in the locker for Dr. Richard Newland’s charge, who ran a cracking second here on his last start.

He’s got to give 1lb more to Romanor on this occasion, but that rival continues to flatter to deceive a tad so the progressive Worcestershire gelding could be the one to follow in this contest.

The unexposed Guetapan Collonges ranks chief threat, albeit this is a tough start to life over fences.
