HUZZAH. I’ve got the bit between my teeth and just can’t wait for the action to get rolling this weekend!
It’s been a great week for this column with heatlier profits than the vegan sausage rolls at Greggs… Here’s hoping for more winners on the way.
1.50 Galvin – This is a cracker of a contest and it’s safe to say most of the runners wouldn’t be out of place at the top level.
Galvin took on the best at Cheltenham in the Ballymore and although he didn’t win, certainly wasn’t disgraced in finishing sixth.
He possibly didn’t quite stay that day so this drop in trip is ideal and he won over course and distance back in February.
3.05 The Cashel Man – It’s hard to know which of these are fit enough, but The Cashel Man definitely won’t have any problems in that regard.
He’s had a decent campaign over hurdles this winter including finishing only half a length of a subsequent Grade 1 winner last time.
On his day he’s a smart sort on the level and he could just take advantage of his race fitness for maestro Nicky Henderson.

FONTWELL 3.50 – Romain De Senam (Click here to see the best prices and place your bet)
KEMPTON 5.10 – Capofaro (Click here to see the best prices and place your bet)
3.50 Romain De Senam – Classy at his best, though hasn’t won as much as often as he should.
However, this won’t take a huge amount of winning and he should like the ground more than his main rival Not Another Muddle.
Both his last two performances suggest he’s up to landing this and he’s well-handicapped on his old form.
5.10 Capofaro – Had a 3yo weight allowance in a classified stakes last time and showed much-improved form to win nicely.
He’s been raised 3lb and now switches to handicap company, but I’d be amazed if there wasn’t more to come from him after just four starts.
This is not a strong race and he should be able to make it two on the bounce.
