Wetherby’s NAP: HIGH UP IN THE AIR | 2:50pm racingtv.com/blackfriday This Friday Handicap Chase | Dom’s Pick
A decent affair in Yorkshire with the vote going to Gary Moore’s gelding, who looked overextended at Sandown Park in a Listed contest back in March which ended his five-race winning streak.
He was in fine vein prior to that, however, and should fare better now back down in trip for the southern-based yard.
Aintree victor Darling Du Large has returned in fine fettle this autumn and looks the main danger to the selection 6lb higher from his Merseyside success.

This looks like it could be at the mercy of Nicky Richards’ gelding, who finished a fine second back in October behind a potentially handy sort, so has experience and race fitness to boot.
His Bangor-on-Dee second has worked out well and with a run under his belt in this sphere a month ago, he will likely be tough to beat under Danny McMenamin.
Rory And Me took the silver medal over track-and-trip on his only hurdles start to date, but that was twelve months ago and the lack of an outing since is a bit of a concern.
