Grand Sefton Preview: Mystifiable holds a clear chance

Share this on

Mystifiable – 20-1 Ladbrokes and Coral

The Willie Mullins-trained superstar Douvan is set to make his seasonal reappearance on Saturday in Sandown’s Grade 1 Betfair Tingle Creek Chase and even if the seven-year-old runs close to his best since finishing lame when only seventh in this year’s Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase the son of Walk In The Park faces a formidable rival in the race-fit Fox Norton who is on a four-timer following victories at Aintree, Punchestown and Cheltenham on his first start of the current campaign.

With the finish of the two mile contest likely to be fought out by the two principles the race makes little appeal as a betting medium, unlike Aintree’s Grand Sefton Chase on the same afternoon.

Run over the Grand National fences the 2m 5f handicap has attracted an entry of 22 at Monday’s declaration stage headed by the Tom George-trained Double Shuffle. Paul Nicholls holds a strong hand courtesy of last years winner As De Mee and Sametegal who ran well on his first start for twenty months at Wetherby recently. The former will be running off a 12lb higher mark on this occasion however while the latter also faces a stiff task off a rating of 144.


While those two horses are both quoted at a single-figure price by bookmakers the lightly-weighted Mystifiable makes more appeal at the 20-1 available with Ladbrokes and Coral. The nine-year-old gelding has won three of his eight starts over fences and despite not being the most consistent of performers is just the type to take to the unique fences and is capable of a bold effort with just 10st 5lb to carry.

The son of Kayf Tara was most impressive in winning a novice chase at Newbury in March 2016 and while managing to trouble the judge on only one occasion since, that being a Perth handicap back in April, the horse is well capable of landing a decent prize off his current mark of 130.


The mount of Paddy Brennan ran well on his seasonal reappearance at Chepstow when fourth behind the well handicapped Romain De Senam, a run that should have put the grey spot on for his first major target of the season and with trainer Fergal O’Brien going great guns at the moment his charge can continue the stable’s fine form in the race worth £43,330 to the winner.
