12-15 @ Uttoxeter – ROYAL MER (5/1)
Royal Mer makes his debut for David Pipe and Jamie Brace this afternoon and the five-year-old gelding should be capable of going close. He was good enough to finish as runner up over a little further on his last race in France. He should have no issues with the ground and a tongue strap has been applied for the first time this afternoon. Most of his rivals are now looking rather exposed in this field and the likes of Fazayte has to overcome a career high mark. The yard won this with Main Fact in 2020 so it is a race they like to target and he has to be high on any shortlist today.
2-32 @ Uttoxeter – WEST TO THE BRIDGE (9/2)
West To The Bridge may get another opportunity to put his head in front here this afternoon. The ten-year-old looked like he was coming back into form when third at Chepstow in a competitive handicap on Welsh National day. He really came into his own this time last year as he won four races between January and March at distances ranging from two-and-a-half miles to three-and-a-quarter miles. The softer the ground, the better are his chances and it is interesting that Bridget Andrews takes the ride. She is very selective and obviously feels she can get a good tune out of him following that last run. West To The Bridge has dropped below his last winning mark so the handicapper is giving him a chance too.
3-07 @ Uttoxeter – TIP TOP MOUNTAIN (13/2)
Tip Top Mountain is taken to get back on track following a disappointing run when last seen out at Fontwell. Having won on his seasonal return at the same track. It was unusual to see him make as many errors as he did unless he had become complacent. A return to Uttoxeter could well be to his benefit as he won here on the only other occasion he has raced here. Bryan Carver keeps the ride on eight-year-old having guided him to all three career successes thus far. Tip Top Mountain is becoming a bit of a specialist at this two-and-a-half miles and is the only course and distance winner in the field. That should work in his favour and it would be no surprise to see him back in the winners enclosure.
4-12 @ Uttoxeter – BARRIER PEAKS (5/2)
Barrier Peaks could well be the answer in this handicap hurdle. The seven-year-old hinted that he was coming into form when third at Ffos Las just before Christmas. He made the most of the heavy ground at Exeter last time out to seal a five length win over The Imposter. That horse has come out to win again subsequently so the form is looking useful. Not much in this race jumps out on paper apart from the selection, who now he has gathered some confidence, can carry on his improvement. Fergus Gillard claims three pounds off his partners’ back and they have bold claims.
