CLASSIC CHASE WIN ON CARD FOR TRAINER BEN PAULING
Le Breuil won the four miler at the last Cheltenham Festival coming out best in a dour battle with Irish raider Discorama.
That is really good form and we know he stays well from that win as well as having the class to place over two and a half miles at Cheltenham on good ground. JJ Codd rode him in the Becher Chase at Aintree before Christmas where he ran and jumped well until tiring nearing the final fence.
That run was encouraging and with Luca Morgan claiming 7lbs, Le Breuil is affectively running from a mark of 141 leaving him very well handicapped on his best form. The soft ground will suit as will the step up in trip to 3m5f.
Kimberlite King placed second in the aforementioned Becher Chase and the handicapper was quite lenient raising him just the 3lbs. The Conditional ran a cracker in the Ladbrokes Trophy chase behind De Rasher Counter but looks only fairly handicapped on 142. It is the National Hunt chase winner Le Breuil who we back to land this marathon chase for trainer Ben Pauling.
Warwick - 15:00
1 Point EACH WAY Le Breuil (13/2 generally, look for bookies paying 5 places)
