The 2020 Weatherbys Racing Bank David Whitaker Handicap Chase takes place at Perth Racecourse on Wednesday 23 September. It is only the third edition of the race, but it is by far the classiest renewal with the weights headed by the Grade 1 winning chaser La Bague Au Roi. She takes on seven rivals in a bid to win the first prize of £11,710.
Elomono comes here in decent form after a second and a win in class 4, but he goes up two grades here off a 5lb higher mark. That makes this look a tough ask at a course where he’s failed to win off lower marks on his four previous visits.
Bafana Blue is another horse that hasn’t won on his previous visits to Perth, be it he’s only been here twice. More worrying is the fact he’s on an 18lb higher mark than last time he ran here and he’s 6lb higher than his last win.
Amalfi Doug has a decent record at Perth, having won four of his nine races here. His last win came off 125 in a class 3 over course and distance, but he’s up another 5lb in a much tougher looking contest, and he was beaten in a similar grade last time.
If a previous course and distance winner is to lift the prize, it could be Red Giant. He’s now 8lb lower than when winning a class 3 over course and distance last year, but he’s hard to recommend on his current form.
Very First Time makes his Perth debut, but he won plenty of races last season. He can be forgiven his last run in the Midlands National, but he still needs to prove he can defy a mark 7lb higher than the last one he won off, and he needs to that winning right-handed for the first time.
Sutton Manor used to be useful for Gordon Elliott and is now 15lb lower than at his peak. But he showed nothing on debut for his new stable and his last win was in 2017.
Jarveys Plate is a useful type who often goes best fresh. He’s also a bumper winner at Perth, but that is his only win going right-handed.
La Bague Au Roi is our Perth 4.15 tip. Trainer Warren Greatrex looks to have found a great opportunity for his high-class mare, who has won many times right-handed and goes well fresh. She loves to lead, and she looks capable of setting off in front and never letting her rivals land a blow.
