Ed Quigley: Weekend Watch - Saturday 5th November

Ed has six tips for the meetings at Aintree and Wincanton


1.15pm Wincanton - McFabulous

I like the claims of MCFABULOUS first time out over fences in the Rising Stars Novices’ Chase. A classy sort over hurdles, going right-handed on a speed-orientated track on a sound surface should be perfect for him.

Paul Nicholls is flying, and this chasing debutant should take some stopping with Harry Cobden in the saddle.

1.50pm Wincanton - Slipway (Each Way)

The Badger Beer Chase at Wincanton (1.50) is an intriguing encounter, where Frodon could easily boss the opposition under Bryony Frost. Eased to a mark of 158, he must have major claims, but looks plenty short enough in the betting.

As an each-way alternative, SLIPWAY, is a progressive staying chaser who looked smart when winning at Perth at the backend of last season. The 7-year-old is 10lb higher in the weights, but is clearly heading in the right direction, so it wouldn’t be a shock if he got in the mix under Nico de Boinville.

3.00pm Wincanton - Knight Salute

At the same track, the Elite Hurdle takes place at 3.00, and I just wonder whether KNIGHT SALUTE is being unfairly overlooked as the outsider of the quartet.

He has to take a step up, but should have stripped fitter for his recent exploits at Cheltenham, and this relative test of speed should suit him better. I wouldn’t be shocked if he upset the applecart here for the Milton Harris team.

1.01pm Aintree - Lisnagar Oscar (Each Way)

There is some top quality racing taking place at Aintree, and it’s the Pertemps Qualifier at 1.01pm, where it could be worth chancing your arm with the 2020 Stayers’ Hurdle winner LISNAGAR OSCAR.

He looks a shadow of his former self, but he now has a handicap mark that reflects that, so given his back-class, it would be daft to rule him out. He goes well fresh, and any rain that arrives won’t be an inconvenience.

2.11pm Aintree - Al Dancer

AL DANCER has always had a lot of ability without perhaps getting the results to show for it up, but looks to have a good opportunity to bounce back to winning ways in the Grand Sefton at Aintree.

If he takes to the National fences, he looks to have major claims off a mark of 144, and cut in the ground will not be a problem. He has a good record when fresh, so can go well for the Charlie Deutsch and Sam Thomas combination.

2.45pm Aintree

BREWIN’UPASTORM won this race 12 months ago in impressive fashion, and should be primed for another big run in defence of his crown at Aintree.

A 9-length victor in this last year, he comes out favourably at the weights with chief market rival Langer Dan, who has to prove that he can land a blow at this level. Sean Bowen takes the ride on Brewin’upastorm and looks the one to beat.
