Hexham Racecourse & Chepstow Racecourse

Two each at Hexham Racecourse and Chepstow Racecourse today.

Hexham Racecourse

3.05 - Kerisper steps back up to 3m and fences after a mid-division finish on his seasonal debut over hurdles a couple of weeks ago. Gets another 3lbs back on 107 today. Won a hurdle back in 2016 from 126 so needs to find that form again, but has a good opportunity here. Tom Bellamy rides and the pair have each way chances.

4.50 - Took The Lot has his third bumper having won on his debut and arguably ran better when third ladt time with a penalty, both at Stratford. This looks a shade tougher but he has come on since the last run and can go close again here. Jack Savage rides in this conditional riders event.

Chepstow Racecourse

3.20 - Ballyoptic last ran in the Grand National where he fell late on but comes in to this in good order and 3lbs better off on 152. Enjoys a trip these days and this 2m 7+f may be a little short, but he went well here in the Welsh National, seemed to enjoy the track and should go well again today. Another with each way prospects, Sam Twiston-Davies rides.

4.30 - Ballyandy last won three outings ago at Uttoxeter and a mark of 142 and raised to 148 subsequently, did well to finish third at Ascot and in the Coral Cup at the Cheltenham Festival. Up a further 3lbs now, makes this a tough assignment, but he’s in good form and can again go close. Sam Twiston-Davies aboard, another good run expected.
