We have two runners in the 2m 4f conditions chase. Bachasson (Paul) ran a cracker in the Coral Cup at Cheltenham but hasn’t run over fences since last year’s Gold Cup. We are running him back a little soon but, with the uncertainty about how long racing can continue, we are letting him take his chance. He will like this ground and on his best form he has a great chance. Bonbon Au Miel (Danny) pulled up in a handicap chase at Naas a couple of weeks ago and would need to improve significantly to win today.
Captain Kangaroo (Jody Townend) makes his debut in the bumper over 2m 2f. He is a fine big horse who probably needs a more galloping track. He may not be seen at his best until the summer and we will be pleased if he finishes in the first four here.
