Banker of the Day Preview
13:30 Ascot – Shishkin
SHISHKIN comes into the Grade 2 1965 Chase as the odds on favourite in his seasonal reappearance. He won two of his four races last season, including a sixteen length demolition over course and distance in the Ascot Chase in February. Pic D'Orhy finished second that day, and is Shiskin's closest market rival on Saturday.
Can Nicky Henderson's star chaser confirm the form this weekend?
14:05 Ascot – Goshen
Three-time Grade 2 winner, GOSHEN, lines up in the Coral Hurdle as the favourite this year, after winning last year's edition by a massive eight and a half lengths. He finished a valiant second in the Select Hurdle at Sandown towards the end of last season, before being put away for summer, and then made his first appearance of the autumn in the Cesarewitch Handicap at Newmarket on the flat in October, finishing an eventual twenty sixth.
Will that pipe-opener prove fruitful in his first race over hurdles this season?
14:35 Punchestown – State Man
STATE MAN has gone from strength to strength since winning for the first time out in his third appearance. Winning seven of his last eight races, including the Irish Champion Hurdle and the Punchestown Champion Hurdle, and the one defeat coming to Constitution Hill in last year's Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham, he comes into this race in insatiable form.
Can he defend his crown, and win his sixth Grade 1 race in the process, on Saturday?
15:00 Haydock – Bravemansgame
Daryl Jacob is in the hot seat onboard BRAVEMANSGAME this weekend, with usual jockey Harry Cobden heading to Ascot on Saturday. Paul Nicholls' stable star heads the market for the Grade One Betfair Chase, despite not winning since last year's King George at Kempton. He finished second in his first race this season, the Grade 2 Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby, so he should come to Haydock fully fit.
Can he get back to winning ways?
