Bruce Millington, Nick Watts, Stuart Riley and Paddy Power’s Sam Harley look back at a thrilling Fighting Fifth win for Buveur D’Air, and the Ladbrokes Trophy where Colin Tizzard secured another win with Sizing Tennessee.
We also preview the return of Altior in Saturday’s Tingle Creek chase at Sandown and look at some top handicaps at Aintree with the Randox Health Becher Handicap Chase and Grand Sefton Handicap Chase.
– On the latest Racing Postcast, Bruce and the team look back at a memorable Fighting Fifth Hurdle as Buveur D’Air silences the doubters with a dominant display over Samcro and Summerville Boy. Can the team find anything to oppose him in the betting for the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham?
– We look back at the big races over the weekend as Sizing Tennessee and Elegant Escape secure a 1-2 for Colin Tizzard in the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury, but Wattsy liked the look of another placed horse.
– The Tingle Creek takes place at Sandown Park on Saturday and the team are all looking forward to seeing Altior back in action, but with Might Bite misfiring last week, might Nicky Henderson be tempted to step him up to the King George?
– Plus, we look ahead to midweek action at Exeter and Sandown and preview racing at Aintree and Punchestown in the form of the Randox Health Becher Handicap Chase, Grand Sefton Handicap Chase and John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase.
