AIM FOR THE MOON (best price 4-1) looked a horse to keep on side the way she toyed with the opposition over today’s C&D last time out and even though she might have to raise her game another notch due to a slight step up in class, Michael Wigham’s mare is fancied to prove equal to the task. 

Held up towards the rear early after a sluggish beginning at the seaside venue, the daughter of First Samurai travelled sweetly before being produced with her challenge at the two-furlong marker and without the minimum of fuss, she soon stamped her authority on proceedings, ultimately winning with plenty in hand. 

Due to the overnight rain, she will obviously have to prove herself on a slightly easier surface, but hopefully conditions won’t be too bad and her qualities with be able to come to fore over a track that clearly plays into her strengths.

Dan Skelton seemingly holds all the aces in this handicap chase with HOME FREE (best price 2-1) and God’s Own Getaway having the strongest credentials and of the pair, the former makes the most appeal following a highly promising effort on chase debut at Hexham last time out. 

In a race run at a strong gallop thanks to the exploits of Chase A Fortune, the six-year-old impressed with the way he jumped and travelled throughout and despite looking the likeliest winner with another good leap at the last, he ultimately lost out in the run to the line by the strong-finishing Five Dollar Fine. 

As we all know, a good jumping technique is crucial at today’s venue with those row of five fences down the back straight a graveyard for horses who are a bit fragile in that department but the son of Soldier Of Fortune should relish attacking that part of the track and with Harry Skelton likely to send him forward at that juncture, his mount will have hopefully built up a big enough advantage to withstand any possible late pressure.

PARC D’AMOUR (best price 11-4) undeniably should have won more races than his ability suggests but it might well be that fences are the making of him and providing he does take to his new vocation; Kim Bailey’s inmate has the qualities to make an impact on chase debut. 

A keen going sort, he was once again switched off right at the back of the field on his latest encounter at Huntingdon and despite running on eye-catchingly in the latter stages, one felt  Gavin Sheehan rather overegged the pudding. 

Given a much more precise ride by the same pilot at the Cambridgeshire venue the time before, the seven-year-old is clearly very talented when everything falls his way and with the likelihood of today’s contest being run to suit courtesy of Glencassley in the line-up, the son of Walk In The Park can be delivered to good effect late on.
