RED INFANTRY (3.15 Haydock) can lead the charge in the Peter Marsh Chase.
This progressive sort was second in the London National at Sandown where he plugged on gamely in unsuitable stamina sapping soft conditions when a one length second to Morny Wing who had a massive 23 lbs. weight pull.It was a long way back to third placed Exitas and that was a fair performance, particularly as he jumped left on occasions.
Clearly a return to left handed Haydock - where he won his previous race over three and a half miles from sharp operators Bishops Road and Alvarado in November - will help the Ian Williams trained runner, and Tom O'Brien, on board when he scored that day, is back in the plate again, and it is almost identical good to soft ground.
He got another 5 lbs. hike for his Sandown effort but is still on the upgrade and a mark of 142 looks fair with 10-6 a nice mark in this.
With Valtor a non runner, the 2017 Grand National winner One For Arthur now tops the weights but has plenty to prove right now. He unseated when returning to Aintree last time out, his first race since that glory day, and a clear round is probably the main aim for a horse who will have bigger targets later in the season.
This is the right time of year for Wakanda but last years Sky Bet Chase winner does tend to save his best for Doncaster and certainly hasn't set the pulses racing so far this season.
Colin Tizzard could probably win with a circus horse right now and Robinsfirth was the ringmaster in a decent contest at Cheltenham last month. Ballyarthur and Captain Redbird have strong claims also, while Three Musketeers looks a lively outsider on best form.
But Red Infantry has more scope than any of these, comes here in top form and is well proven on both track and ground. He looks the business.
