Casino can pay Big at Warwick
1.50 WARWICK: WHITSON BLOODSTOCK NOVICES´ LIMITED HANDICAP CHASE (2M4F)
An extremely tight handicap which is probably not the type that most would want to get involved in. As I write this there is nothing to choose between the top four in the market, which proves just how hard this will be to decipher.
Couldhavehaditall ran a very creditable race on his reappearance at Leicester last time over a trip which proved too sharp in the end. He will be much more at home now stepped back up in trip and should strip fitter for Paul Webber. Canuspotit was very well backed on his chasing debut at Market Rasen but was brought down at half way. He could be very interesting if the money comes again.
The very consistent Judge Davis has gone close at Exeter on his last two starts and he should be in the mix up again, but the one that I am willing to take a punt on is the Nigel Twiston-Davies trained Big Casino, despite the 8yo having to give weight away to most.
The son of Court Cave finished off last season with victory at Cartmel and has returned with three decent efforts this season, the latest of which was at Aintree, a run for which he has been dropped 3lbs. That allows him to just sneak into this race and he should find it a lot easier to score now dropped in class. Ground should be perfect and I expect a big run for his in form stable.
Of the rest, the consistent Neville makes his Chasing debut and may be one to consider.
