Ascot Supports Thames Hospice Novices' Limited Handicap Chase 2019 Analysis

13:55 at Ascot on 20th December

This looks a very winnable novices’ handicap chase. The lowest-weighted horse The Grandon is 12lb higher than when being beaten in a handicap last time. The Flying Sofa has also been beaten three times off similar marks in handicaps, whilst Capital Force hasn’t been shown much leniency from the handicapper despite losing six handicaps in a row.

Sully D’oc Aa escapes the handicapper’s wrath for finishing second to a useful type last time and has chances.

Meanwhile, Greaneteen was beaten 52 lengths off a 2lb lower mark over hurdles last time and needs to find improvement on his chasing debut, though that is possible as he hails from the Paul Nicholls stable.

Debuchet looks the one to be on. This high-class bumper horse failed to win over hurdles but did finish his novice season rated 140. He was well-gambled to win on his chasing debut in Ireland and his trainer and jockey surely wouldn’t be making the trip to England unless they thought he had a great chance of winning the £10,000 first prize off a mark of 131.

Sky Bet Supreme Trial Novices' Hurdle 2019 Analysis

14:30 at Ascot on 20th December

Only four horses line up for this Grade 2 Hurdle but it’s an interesting quartet of potential star performers.

Master Debonair is the only penalised runner and he must concede 3lb to his rivals after winning over course and distance last time. He has plenty of talent but it’s a worry he was well-beaten at both the Cheltenham and Aintree festivals last season.

The defeat at Aintree came behind McFabulous, who is held in the highest regard by trainer Paul Nicholls, who won this race in 2013 and 2016. He didn’t jump that well when beaten on his hurdling debut but has been extensively schooled since. However, he might prefer better ground.

Time Flies By didn’t see a racecourse until October and, after a win and a second in bumpers, Nicky Henderson wastes no time sending him over hurdles. His bumper form wasn’t as strong as the other three horses but, as Henderson has trained four of the last eight winners of this race, he must be respected.

Ribble Valley gets the vote. His normally reserved trainer Nicky Richards has been quick to sing the praises of this one and he’s not one to usually over-face his horses by sending them down South so early in their careers. He handles soft ground brilliantly and also runs in the same colours of Monet’s Garden, who gave his owners some great days at Ascot.

Thames Materials Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle 2019 Analysis

15:05 at Ascot on 20th December

This is just the fifth edition of this handicap hurdle over 2 miles 5 furlongs and 141 yards. A noticeable statistic is that all the previous four renewals have gone to unexposed 5-year-olds, and there are four horses of that age in the 10-strong field.

Kozier looked promising on just his second start over hurdles last time, which came after a lengthy absence having been trained as a juvenile hurdler in his first season. But he was only rated 59 on the flat and, though Alan King has turned plenty of low-rated flat horses into good hurdlers, the others have more potential.

Ashfield Paddy has already won a handicap, but this looks a step up in class for Jonjo O’Neill’s runner. Saint Reve also steps up in class but looks equipped to do so after easily winning a novice hurdle at Wincanton last time. He lines up for last year’s winning trainer and jockey Paul Nicholls and Lorcan Williams.

Versatility can hopefully live up to his name, as he runs on soft to heavy ground for the first time. Interestingly, this son of Yeats makes his handicap debut at the course where his father won four Ascot Gold Cups, whilst his 10lb claimer also gets a bigger allowance than many of his rival’s jockeys.
