Competitive football is still a day away but I’ve enjoyed our little foray into racing and fancy Emerald Chieftan to go well today at Market Rasen.
Emerald Chieftan to win the 15:05 @ 5/2
Rebecca Menzies has an excellent 29% win rate over the last 14 days and the Teesside trainer will hope for a performance from this nine-year-old after being third at Southwell last time out.
Today marks another run over fences and the slight step up in trip to 2m5½f could be worth the gamble having failed to kick on in his most recent outing.
It is just a touch further than the distance that brought him glory in January at Sedgefield but he looks ready for it.
Let’s Get At It to win 16:10 @ 15/8
We stick with the Lincolnshire course for our second pick and Let’s Get At It is in form after winning on two of his last three starts.
Despite doubts over his jumping, overcoming a poor final leap over the last in his last outing at Catterick, he has good pace, as he showed by bursting clear to win by seven lengths in North Yorkshire.
Trainer Olly Murphy is in decent form after some nice returns at the Festival and he will fancy the six-year-old go well, even with a change of jockey to Fergus Gregory.
