After a thoroughly enjoyable first ever day of racing on Good Friday attention now turns to the weekend action which sees some very good jumps and flat actions take place.
Bold Chief returned to action at Uttoxeter with a facile success and is taken to follow up in the 2-05 at Haydock. Harry Fry’s charge is lightly raced for age and with plenty left in the locker he is fancied to improve his already impressive strike rate.
A really exciting young horse is in action in the Jockey Club Grassroots Hurdle Series Final at 2-40. Nick Gifford’s Generous Ransom has been somewhat a revelation since stepped up in trip and handicapping. He followed up his impressive Exeter win with an even more impressive display at Wincanton. With the trainer stating that he’s still getting the hang of things he certainly looks the one to side with here. It will be fascinating to see how he gets on once tackling a fence!
