2pts win HEY BIG SPENDER 12.5/1 (Betfair) Betfred Classic Chase
1pt win FAASEL 8/1 (Generally available) Betfred Classic Chase

Hey Big Spender is a thoroughly likeable, quality staying chaser who posseses the ability to defy top weight here. This trip will be well within his compass on this sort of track and on this ground - though he has probably already proved his staminia when a staying on fourth to Galaxy Rock at Cheltenham in November. He won around here in his novice days and looks all set for a big run.

Former high class hurdler Faasel is proving adept in his new existence as a long distance chaser. Admittedly, he hasen't won a race for over three years but he runs off a similar mark as when runner up in two Kim Muirs, is effective when fresh and is sure to be in peak condition here after a long lay off.

Hey Big Spender won + 23pts
