2m (1m7f201y)
Jockey: Daryl Jacob

Two off to Leicester today.

3.00 - Scotchtown is still a maiden over fences from 13 runs, but had a wind op in November and needed the run when returning at Newbury over 2m 7+f in mid-January. Went well enough until the latter stages before fading and coming back in his own time. Down to 120 now, a pound lowrer than arguably his best run to date when second at Sandown a year ago over 3m. A return to that form would see him with a leading chance over 2m 6+f on soft ground here and we are hopeful of seeing improvement today. Sam Twiston-Davies aboard.

3.30 - Muratello meets just 3 rivals for this 2m handicap chase for just his fourth outing over fences. Another who had wind surgery in November after his fencing debut, he showed improvement on his return and then better when second at Haydock going down by just three parts of a length five weeks ago. Is up 5lbs to 130 for that but has more to come and can go close again here on better ground. Daryl Jacob rides.
