Old Roan Chase Preview

Bouvreuil – Bet365 14-1

Doncaster and Newbury stage some high quality Flat racing this weekend but fans of the National Hunt game are also well catered for with plenty of exciting action set to take place at Cheltenham on Saturday and Aintree on Sunday afternoon, the highlight being the 188Bet Monet’s Garden Old Roan Chase at the home of the Grand National.

With an entry of 24 at Monday’s declaration stage the 2m 4f contest looks set to be a competitive affair but with several horses entered elsewhere the final line-up could be in the region of 13 or 14 making the 14-1 currently available about the Paul Nicholls-trained Bouvreuil an attractive proposition considering the six-year-old is an intended runner from a stable that can do little wrong at the moment.



The son of Saddler Maker may not be in the same class as Nicholls’ 2006 winner Kauto Star but off a handy mark of 145 and set to receive a massive 21lb from top weight Gods Own the JP McManus-owned gelding should take plenty of beating if able to reproduce his performances at the last two Cheltenham Festivals.

In 2016 Bouvreuil found only Ballyalton a half length too good in the Close Brothers Novices Handicap Chase and twelve months later the mount of Sam Twiston-Davies finished a creditable third behind the classy Road To Respect ( off level weights ) and Baron Alco in the Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate Handicap Chase. An excellent fifth in Cheltenham’s BetVictor Gold Cup on his seasonal reappearance last year Bouvreuil is unlikely to fail through lack of fitness on Sunday and looks the stable’s first string ahead of Newbury specialist Warriors Tale.

Racing Post Arkle runner-up Cloudy Dream heads the betting on 4-1 but trainer Malcolm Jefferson is also responsible for the unbeaten novice chaser of last season Waiting Patiently and is unlikely to be represented by both promising chasers. Aintree Grade 1 winner Tea For Two may find the trip on the sharp side and is hardly well handicapped with 11st 8lb to shoulder while Bristol De Mai and Shantou Village may be using this as a prep for the Betfair Chase and BetVictor Gold Cup respectively.

Aso and Ballybolley are capable of running well on their best form but with the Paul Nicholls stable in such tremendous shape at the moment Bouvreuil can land the first prize of £39,389 for the Ditcheat team.
