Warwick’s NAP: DO YOUR JOB | 2:00pm Jewson Stan Mellor Memorial Novices’ Chase | Dom’s Pick
Plenty of former solid two-mile hurdlers to take note of here with Michael Scudamore’s seven-year-old getting the vote on his chase debut.
He finished a cracking second in the Grade 1 Top at Aintree when last seen in April, with his only real disappointing run arriving in the Sandown mud in the Tolworth in January.
The return to quicker ground on this occasion is sure to suit, however, and he may now improve heading over the larger obstacles.
NB: REPUBLICAN | 3:05pm Jewson Stratford-Upon-Avon Handicap Chase
Oliver Sherwood’s representative was unfortunate not to record a success last campaign and would’ve likely won at Perth had he not crashed out at the final flight in April.
He has had chasing experience before, claiming second at Fontwell a year ago following a fourth at Ascot in a race that has subsequently worked out very strongly.
With that to boot, he could be the answer here against some newer rivals to the sphere and this step up in trip should be right up his street.
