Here are your free horse racing tips. A horse-by-horse guide to the Neville Hotels Novice Chase race.
1. Amirite (Henry de Bromhead/Rachael Blackmore)
He will need to jump better now but has decent claims. He made a promising start over fences when winning in a maiden chase at Fairyhouse, shaping as a good prospect, and would likely have won the Florida Pearl if he didn’t make a late mistake.
2. Barnacullia (Michael Mulvany/Keith Donoghue)
He will find it very hard to win, despite springing a surprise to win a novice chase at Galway in October. He later ran to a similar level when finishing third in a Grade 3 at Punchestown last time but this will be tougher.
3. Churchstonewarrior (Jonathan Sweeney/Aidan Coleman)
He cannot be discounted having developed into a useful hurdler last season. He won twice and he has shaped well when finding only one too good on both of his starts over fences so far. He has looked a little novicey errors at times, but with Aiden Coleman he remains of interest.
4. Frontal Assault (Gordon Elliott/Jordan Colin Gainford)
Ran some great races over fences last season without winning. He finished runner-up in the Irish Grand National and made the most of a good opportunity after six months off when opening his account in this sphere at Galway in October. However, he underwhelmed when in the Troytown Handicap Chase at Navan last time and needs to bounce back.
5. Gaillard du Mesnil (Willie Mullins/Paul Townend)
He remains a maiden over fences but has shown a lot of good form and should be carefully considered. He finished third to L’Homme Presse at the Cheltenham Festival and also not far behind Frontal Assault in the Irish Grand National. And his best bit of form was when he ran a superb race when beaten by Mighty Potter on his return in the Drinmore.
6. Mighty Potter (Gordon Elliott/Non-runner)
7. Three Stripe Life (Gordon Elliott/Jack Kennedy)
He is very capable and a contender. He finished runner-up to Sir Gerhard at the Cheltenham Festival before winning the Grade 1 Mersey Novices’ Hurdle at Aintree last season. He then made the perfect start over fences at Naas in November but then in the Drinmore he pulled up when initially travelling well after making a mess of the eighth.
8. Unexpected Depth (Oliver Mckiernan/Danny Mullins)
He faces a tough task here to win. He finished runner-up to Three Stripe Life on his debut over fences faded last time out. He remains capable of better.
