Horse Profiles for the National Hunt 2017/18 December 9th
There are 3 horses that from a profiling point of view could run well today
13.30 Aintree VIEUX LION ROUGE (EW)
I know he has it all to do against the favourite but he has a record of 11111 on heavy ground and this is his time of year as record in December to February reads: 1U11121111. He does seem to like flat tracks and did beat the fav under these conditions last season at Haydock.
14.45 Chepstow BUYWISE (EW)
The horse is a bit of a thinker and I hope this undulating track can keep him interested. In his chase runs to date he has encountered heavy ground 3 times and won on all 3 occassions. He seems to be best suited to smaller fields as record in fields of 11 runners or less reads: 111153.
14.25 Wetherby SPECIAL CATCH
Chase runs. I feel that the horse will comeon for his first run at Ayr and when racing 31 to 60 days after last race record reads: 112. He has raced twice at 1m7.5f and won on both occassions. He goes well on soft ground and all of his wins have come in fields of 7 runners or less.
