Peterborough Chase Preview: Top Notch a cut above
We preview the Peterborough Chase, which has been rerouted to Taunton following the abandonment of Huntingdon on Sunday.
The Grade 2 Peterborough Chase – originally part of last Sunday’s abandoned card at Huntingdon - will now take place at Taunton on Thursday. Despite double-figure entries, which included Cue Card, the race has cut up significantly and in spite of the race being reopened on Wednesday morning, only five horses are set to go to post.
Top Notch was the market leader for the original race on Sunday and he is again a short-priced favourite here. He was below form on his return from seven months off back over hurdles at Aintree in November, beaten three lengths by Unowhatimeanharry, but he proved better than ever when winning back over fences in the 1965 Chase at Ascot last time.
