Ladbrokes Trophy: Runner-By-Runner Guide


Get the Timeform verdict for each contender for the 2020 Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury in our runner-by-runner guide.



1 - Ballyoptic - Nigel Twiston-Davies/Mr Zac Baker (3)

Very smart on his day, winning the Charlie Hall and 3m handicap at Ascot (both heavy) last season. Does need to shrug off a poor reappearance run in this year's Charlie Hall, though.


2 - Vinndication - Kim Bailey/David Bass

Most likeable and progressive chaser who took it up another notch when 2 lengths second to Cyrname (Aye Right 5 lengths back in third) in the Charlie Hall on reappearance. Cheekpieces added. Considered.


3 - Secret Investor - Paul Nicholls/Harry Cobden

Returned from wind surgery with an improved performance to see off Potterman by 7 lengths in a 3m Chepstow handicap in October. Form boosted since so a 6 lb rise is not excessive. High on the shortlist.


4 - Beware The Bear - Nicky Henderson/Jeremiah McGrath

Won the Ultima at the 2019 Cheltenham Festival. Even better form when fourth of 24 in this on last year's reappearance and probably worth ignoring a lesser run over hurdles on his only subsequent outing.


5 - Kildisart - Ben Pauling/Nico de Boinville

Right back to his best when narrowly denied by The Conditional in the Ultima at Cheltenham Festival in March. Solid reappearance run over hurdles at Wetherby and that should put him spot on for this.


6 - Copperhead - Colin Tizzard/Robbie Power

Grade 2 novice chase winner last term but well beaten when falling heavily in the RSA on final start. Also dropped away tamely on hurdle return last month but his yard does have a good recent record in this.


7 - Regal Encore - Anthony Honeyball/Richie McLernon

Added to his fine Ascot record when taking a Grade 3 handicap on reappearance but he's harder to predict elsewhere, underlined by his 3 performances in this, pulling up twice but also third in 2017.


8 - Aye Right - Harriet Graham/Callum Bewley

Has quickly developed into very smart chaser, running a belter when 7 lengths third to Cyrname (Vinndication second) in the Charlie Hall at Wetherby. Unexposed granted this sort of stamina test. Player.


9 - Mister Malarky - Colin Tizzard/Jonjo O'Neill Jr

Won a Grade 3 handicap at Kempton last winter. Ought to be sharper for his reappearance run behind Regal Encore at Ascot last month but he was only sixth off an identical mark last year. Blinkers added.


10 - Black Op - Tom George/Jonathan Burke

Smart novice chaser last term and reappeared with a fine fourth to Imperial Aura in 2½m Carlisle listed 27 days ago. 3m has always looked to be the limit of his stamina, though, so the extra 2f is a worry.


11 - Two For Gold - Kim Bailey/Ciaran Gethings

Smart novice last season and stepped up again when second in a competitive 19f Wetherby handicap on reappearance. Open to further progress now going back up in trip. One of 2 strong contenders for his yard.


12 - The Conditional - David Bridgwater/Brendan Powell

Enjoyed excellent first season with this yard, second in this and concluding with a neck defeat of Kildisart (Vinndication fourth) in the Ultima at Cheltenham, doing well after a mistake 2 out. Respected.


13 - La Bague Au Roi - Warren Greatrex/Richard Johnson

Dual Grade 1 novice chase winner in 2018/19 but without a win since. Behind Vinndication and Aye Right in the Charlie Hall last time and it's likely that her wait for another success will go on a bit longer.


14 - Danny Whizzbang - Paul Nicholls/Sean Bowen

Looked a very smart chaser in the making when taking a Grade 2 novice at this meeting last year but things haven't gone to plan since, including when well beaten in the Badger Beers on return (reportedly bled).


15 - The Hollow Ginge - Nigel Twiston-Davies/Gavin Sheehan

Very useful staying chaser on his day but hard to be sure what sort of form he turns up here in having unseated at the first on his Kelso reappearance. Visored first time.


16 - Potterman - Alan King/Tom Cannon

Improved again to win a competitive 3m handicap at Market Rasen in August and just as good when runner-up at Chepstow (to Secret Investor) and Wincanton (beaten short head in Badger Beers) since.


17 - Ardlethen - Dan Skelton/Harry Skelton

Useful chaser who fared about as well as could be expected when fifth behind Imperial Aura at Carlisle on his return. Top yard always respected but he'll need an improved performance to overcome this mark.


18 - Cloth Cap - Jonjo O'Neill/Tom Scudamore

Third in the 2019 Scottish National. Didn't hit the same heights last season but returned with an encouraging third to Frodon over 25f at Cheltenham. Could go well with cheekpieces on for the first time.


Timeform Analyst's Verdict

A cracking renewal. AYE RIGHT leaves the impression he may have an even bigger performance in him now racing beyond 3m for the first time over fences and can become the first Scottish-trained winner since 1979.

Secret Investor rates a big threat after his impressive defeat of Potterman at Chepstow. Kim Bailey's pair Vinndication and Two For Gold are two of many others who could go well.
