The top two in the jumps jockeys’ championship head to separate tracks on Tuesday but all the action from both Sedgefield and Southwell is live on Sky Sports Racing, before an evening Flat card at Wolverhampton.
3.10 Sedgefield – Latino Fling out to make it perfect two over fences
Donald McCain’s useful mare Latino Fling made the perfect start to life over fences at Stratford in August and will bid to make it two from two in the Join The Vickers.Bet Customer Racing Club Novices’ Handicap Chase (3.10) under Brian Hughes.
Hughes has a way to go to catch runaway leader Sean Bowen if he is to defend his title as champion jockey but is armed with a strong book of six rides.
They will be wary of John McConnell’s Irish raider Construct in what looks a tight five-runner affair. The eight-year-old is also making just a second start over the larger obstacles having finished a good second at Kilbeggan last month.
Brian Ellison’s Tupelo Mississippi has ample chasing experience and could spoil the party on return from wind surgery.
Classy types Knight Salute and Mctigue are the last two winners of the Paxtons No1 CaseIH Dealer In UK&Ireland Juvenile Maiden Hurdle (2.00) and McCain and Hughes will be hoping their Nathaniel filly Weigh Anchor might develop into a useful hurdler in time.
4.05 Southwell – Butch tops talented novice field
With October under way and Chepstow’s jumps season opener just around the corner, we are beginning to see some familiar names reappear from around the top yards.
One of Olly Murphy’s exciting youngsters Butch is back in the Weatherbys Stallion Book Novices’ Hurdle (4.05) under Bowen. The six-year-old got off the mark at Uttoxeter in May before running with real credit on handicap debut when last seen.
Taking him on is Kim Bailey’s Destroytheevidence, who scored at Worcester in May when stepped up to two miles and seven furlongs.
Tzarmix got the better of the talented L’astroboy at Chepstow in March when formerly trained by Sam Thomas and now makes a first start for Jonjo O’Neill.
