Steve Ryder previews the Manifesto Novices’ Chase on Day 1 of the Aintree Festival. 2019 P&L +16.18pts.
1:45 Aintree- La Bague Au Roi 13/8 (3pt)
This race changed shape with the absence of Defi Du Seuil and now looks at the mercy of La Bague Au Roi. She has an incredible record of 14 wins from 19 starts and has looked better than ever this season. She ran a career best at Kempton winning the Grade 1 Kauto Star Novices’ Chase beating subsequent RSA Chase winner Topofthegame and Santini before coping with the drop back down in trip at the Dublin Racing Festival. Her record in the spring is a little bit of a concern but she won the Flogas Novice Chase well in February and connections have decided to skip Cheltenham this year to run here.
La Bague Au Roi receives a 5lb sex allowance in this race and that should make her extremely hard to beat.
