Betfred Classic Preview: Krackatoa to take to take chase off Featherweight

Krackatoa King – 10-1 Betfred

Trainer Kerry Lee has a tremendous record with staying chasers and was responsible for the winner of the Betfred Classic Handicap Chase in 2016 with Russe Blanc, one of three entries the trainer has in this Saturday’s 2018 renewal.

Mountainous provided Lee with a first Welsh Grand National victory in 2016 and came close to taking the race for a second time in three years when her Alfie Spinner found only Raz De Maree too good in the Chepstow marathon last week and Lee will be hoping to go one better in this weekend’s valuable staying contest at Warwick with her number one hope, the consistent ten-year-old Krackatoa King.

Providing top weight Ptit Zig is declared to run Krackatoa King will start the race off only 10 stone and with conditions sure to be testing that could prove to be a major advantage in a contest not for the faint hearted. The son of Kayf Tara has not finished out of the first four since joining Lee in November 2016 and went down by just a length over Saturday’s course and distance when in the care of previous handler Noel Williams.

Krackatoa King has already won twice this season on heavy going so the forecast soft ground is unlikely to pose a problem and should talented 5lb claimer Richard Patrick retain the ride the 10-1 available with the sponsor would make plenty of appeal. Twenty horses were entered for the race worth £42,713 to the winner at Monday’s declaration stage but with several of those having had a hard race in last week’s Welsh National the final field is expected to be in the range of 13-15.

Favourite with the sponsor at 7-1 is Sir Mangan from the in-form Dan Skelton stable but the ten-year-old hardly looks thrown-in off a mark of 134 and a bigger danger to the selection may come in the shape of the lightly-raced Warren Greatrex-trained Missed Approach ( 8-1 Betfred ).

Runner-up to Tiger Roll in last season’s 4m National Hunt Chase at the Cheltenham festival the eight-year-old was not disgraced when sixth in the Ladbrokes Trophy last month and is open to plenty more improvement.
