GALICE MACALO (12.10 Warwick) @ 5/4
GALICE MACALO can get off the mark at the fourth attempt over timber having shaped better than bare results suggest last term.
Jane Williams’ Saddler Maker mare had ran encouragingly on debut at Stratford last July prior to tackling a Listed contest at Aintree in December where she was narrowly in front jumping the last only to fall.
That race has thrown up a few useful sorts and while debatable whether she would have won had she remained upright given she was under pressure and challenged it was nevertheless a solid run until that mishap occured.
She’s since ran another solid race behind Fantastic Ms Fox at Doncaster in Listed company, finishing fourth and beaten around six lengths having probably been given too much to do. This is easier however so it would come as no surprise to see her open her account in a relatively ordinary contest.
AFOREMENTIONED (3.10 Clonmel) @ 5/2
Touch Of Oscar could well prove the one to beat, but Joseph O’Brien’s charge had a hard race at Punchestown two days ago and this might just come too soon so AFOREMENTIONED gets the vote to bounce back from a lesser run at Ballinrobe last month.
Gordon Elliott’s charge had been in decent fettle prior to that last outing, twice finishing runner-up including behind the useful Doctor Duffy at Kilbeggan two starts ago. The Zanzibar gelding had also posted a very good fourth in the Grade Three Rockshore Novices’ Chase, beaten around ten lengths.
He sported first-time cheekpieces in his last outing but might have found the ground against him when finishing fifth behind Line Out who has won since. But back on a better surface he could do better now and while not altogether straightforward he could be worth chancing to put it all together here.
KHAALIS (7.00 Chelmsford) @ 4/1
KHAALIS stepped up on a promising introduction over course and distance to strike back at this venue and trip latest with a four lengths’ defeat of Widaad.
Owen Burrows has his string in good fettle and the Muhaarar colt looked potentially smart in that success where he readily asserted from the two furlong pole to win cosily in the manner of a decent prospect who should continue to improve.
He switches now to the handicap ranks where an initial rating of 80 looks very workable given his potential to further improve and already proven over track and trip looks set to deliver another big run.
There’s a fair chance that he could well prove a good deal better than his current rating and every chance he can strike another victory in this contest.
