Mulcahys Hill stays open to enchancment over fences
18 runners have been declared for the Randox Health Becher Chase (Aintree 1:30), including 2017 Grand National hero One For Arthur (8/1).
The betting is topped by Mulcahys Hill (11/2) who’s frivolously raced over fences and it is easy to see why there are strong market vibes about Warren Greatrex’s runner, particularly after his victory at Cheltenham on his seasonal reappearance.
The second season chaser was pushed out in the closing phases of the 3m contest at Prestbury Park to break his maiden over fences and although he has been handed a 7lb rise within the weights for that success, there could be much more to return.
There ought to be no issues in regards to the stamina of the seven-year-old forward of this Aintree test. He lined up within the 4m chase at the Cheltenham Festival last March where he came down with two fences to go while still travelling properly.
Connections opted to bypass the Open meeting at Cheltenham last month and are optimistic their horse will take properly to the Grand National fences.
Sure stayer Mysteree has undoubted each-way claims
Mysteree outstayed 17 different horses within the 4m Eider Chase at Newcastle in 2017 but since then his type has been largely poor. There have been signs in his last two starts though, that he’s returning to close to his finest.
The 11-year-old was second on his return to the Eider again in February, the place once again he was in rivalry on the back finish of a gruelling contest.
Michael Scudamore’s runner made a winning return to motion at Kelso the place he was an emphatic eight-length winner over 3m2f.
On his old form, Mysteree remains on a workable mark. If there’s a robust pace, it is very feasible that he might be staying on when others fade at the end of the competition, which could see him end in the placings, on the very least.
The bookmakers make him a 16/1 shot, so he presents good worth if you wish to tackle the runners at the high of the market.
