Foxhunter Chase 2021 Racecard

3:40 Fri 19 Mar FOXHUNTER CHASE

Distance: 26f 70y Age: 5yo + Prize: £33,750 Going: Gd/Sft

Analyst's Verdict

A chance is taken on RED INDIAN, who arrives on the back of a couple of impressive wins in points and has some useful form under Rules. Last year's runner-up, Billaway, should be thereabouts again and a big run is expected from Bob And Co if he can iron out some of the mistakes he made when scoring easily at Haydock from Wishing And Hoping.

J: P. Townend
T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland

12-0
* * * *
* * * *
Classy hunter chaser who ended up with too much to do when second in this last term and confirmed he's as good, if not better than ever, when scoring at Naas last time. Big player.

jockey silks 2. BOB AND CO (FR)
J: Sean Bowen

* * * *
Useful chaser in France who completed hat-trick in this sphere when bolting up at Haydock on reappearance from Wishing And Hoping. Jumping will need to be sharper now, but very much one to consider.

J: Harry Cobden

Useful before going the wrong way for Paul Nicholls but back on track when easily landing a couple of points early last year and completed the hat-trick readily in a hunter at Leicester in February.

J: Alex Edwards

2019 winner who wasn't at the top of his game last season but took advantage of a good opening when scoring at Ludlow on Rules return a couple of months ago. Needs a return to his very best.

Took this last year but was below par on reappearance then unseated at Thurles recently, so he's hardly had the ideal prep. Hard to discount nonetheless.

T: T. Ellis

Has enjoyed plenty of success in points and made it 2 from 2 in hunters when landing a 17-runner event at Warwick on Rules return. Could get competitive.

J: Jack Quinlan
T: David Kemp

Multiple winning pointer who should strip fitter for his third at Doncaster recently but found this event a bit too competitive last year.

jockey silks 8. MIGHTY STOWAWAY (IRE)
J: J. W. Kennedy
T: Mrs Denise Foster, Ireland
10
12-0

* *
Winning pointer who returned to Rules with a respectable third to Stand Up And Fight (Billaway second) at Fairyhouse 129 days ago. Hard to see him turning the tables.

J: Jonjo O'Neill Jr.
T: Mrs Jonjo O'Neill

Fairly useful chaser who was back to form when second in a hunter at Doncaster last time but has a bit to find in this company. Cheekpieces go back on.

jockey silks 10. MR MANTILLA (IRE)
J: Kielan Woods
T: D. J. Jeffreys

12-0
* * *

Won 5 of 6 starts in Irish points, latest Dec 13. Not completely discounted for a shrewd stable, particularly if the money comes for him.

J: Lorcan Williams
T: Will Biddick

12-0
* * *
* * *
Useful ex-French hurdler/chaser in 2018/19 for Francois Nicolle. Wide-margin point winner in November and only narrowly denied by Sametegal in hunter at Wincanton last month. Not ruled out.
12
jockey silks 12. RAVISHED (IRE)
J: Thomas Garner
T: J. J. O'Shea

Fair chaser who returned to this sphere with an excellent second to Hazel Hill at Ludlow but was pulled up at Haydock subsequently. Hard to fancy.

J: David Noonan

* * * * *
* * * * *
Useful winning chaser at his best and, given he's landed both starts in points since last seen under Rules, there's every reason to think he retains a good chunk of ability. Interesting runner.

jockey silks 14. SALVATORE
J: Lee Edwards
T: Mel Rowley

Prolific pointer who made second hunter outing a winning one at Musselburgh 41 days ago. This is much tougher but there could be more to come.

J: William Kennedy
T: Miss Sarah Rippon

Formerly useful chaser, efforts in hunters have been uninspiring this term. Firmly up against it.
16
jockey silks 16. STAKER WALLACE (IRE)
J: M. P. Walsh
T: Enda Bolger, Ireland
10
12-0
* * * *
* * * *
Didn't need to be at best when winning 10-runner hunter at Limerick, then was far from disgraced when runner-up to Billaway at Naas subsequently. Likely to give a good account.

jockey silks 17. STAND UP AND FIGHT (IRE)
J: D. J. O'Keeffe
T: Enda Bolger, Ireland
9
12-0
* * * *
* * * *
Beat Billaway in November and, while unable to quite reproduce that, he powered home from an unlikely position when second at Thurles last time. This test will suit, and he's a big player.
18
jockey silks 18. WISHING AND HOPING (IRE)
J: Bryony Frost
T: Mel Rowley

12-0
* *

Useful chaser who was 2 from 3 in this sphere last year but firmly put in his place by Bob And Co at Haydock last time. Needs to do more.
