A trio of handicaps on St Patrick’s Thursday, March 12, kicks off with the £80,000 Listed Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle (2.05pm, 60 remaining entries), in which Crabbie’s Grand National hero Pineau De Re (Dr Richard Newland) was third last year.

Newland said: "He will run at Cheltenham in the Pertemps Final. He is in good form, although realistically it will be difficult to win that race.

"Hopefully he will run well and then it will be on to Aintree."

J P McManus has three at the pointy end of the betting in Cup Final, Regal Encore and Join The Clan, who sprang to market supremacy after a fine win at Wetherby on January 31.

For the sentimentalists at Cheltenham, a McManus/O’Neill/McCoy victory with Join The Clan, would do just nicely.

Hopefully the great man will pick him.

Big Easy
Philip Hobbs identified Big Easy one of his big chances at the Cheltenham Festival.

The Minehead handler told the Times: "Big Easy qualified for the Pertemps by finishing fourth at Exeter the other day.

"The handicapper decided to put him up 2lb, which was a bit mean, but it's a race that should play to his strengths."

Nicky Henderson's little powerful five year old grey Dawalan has won his last two outings. He was tried over three miles at Musselburgh on good ground, and he won impressively. He is as high in the handicap as he needs to be.

Bears Affair is also a very likely runner with conditional jockey Freddie Mitchell on board. He will be claiming seven pounds which will be extremely useful, he has ridden him really well this season, come second in his last couple of races. The team have been really excited for him and think he will run a very competitive race.

Call The Cops was a convincing winner of the BetBright Mobile App Handicap Hurdle for Andrew Tinkler and Henderson at Doncaster on February 28.

Showing no signs of race-rustiness after an absence of 117 days, the six-year-old cruised into the lead at the third-last fence and bounded away to win by five lengths from Waltz Darling.

Tinkler said: "I couldn't believe the way he travelled and jumped. The ground is drying and that's helped him massively. He's always been a horse that's better on better ground. He quickened up well and got a good shot at the last. It was race over after that."
