Uttoxeter, Saturday 4th May

Today we head to Uttoxeter with our first two runners of the new 2024-25 National Hunt season. 

Happy to say that Paul is back and fit and able to ride today which is great news.

First up is Monviel in the Handicap Hurdle at 5.10pm. It was really unfortunate last week when he was travelling well at Sandown and got brought down through absolutely no fault of his own. He ran really well at Uttoxeter, probably a seasonal best a couple of runs ago and a bit of rain over night will have helped his chances. He obviously got beat by Resplendent Grey at Wincanton but I think he’s in good form and I’d to think he can run a competitive race in this field. 

Our next runner is Blagthebookies in the Novices’ Handicap Chase at 6.18pm, who’s new to us. He won a point to point nicely with Chris Barber a few weeks ago. That race didn’t look very competitive but he’s off a low mark here, he seems to jump well and hoepfully he can run a nice race.
