CARDINAL CONFIRMED FOR LINGFIELD SHOWPIECE
Lingfield Park stages a top-class seven-race jumping card on Saturday headed by the £100,000 Grade One totesport Chase (2.10pm), run over an extended two and a half miles.
The card has been transferred from Ascot, where rebuilding work is taking place, to Lingfield and the feature event has 10 top-class entries including the Henry Daly-trained Hand Inn Hand, who landed the prize 12 months ago.
Top hurdler Iris's Gift is set to make his chasing debut at Lingfield and among his opponents will be Murphy's Cardinal, today confirmed a definite starter by trainer Noel Chance.
The nine-year-old won a Grade Three chase in Ireland before being well beaten by Rule Supreme in the Grade One Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup at Leopardstown earlier this month and Chance had considered an alternative engagement in Ireland for his stable star this weekend.
"The attraction of Lingfield is that the totesport Chase is worth about £80,000 more than the race in Ireland and its considerably closer as well," Chance enthused.
"Also we like to support these races - trainers have been castigated in the press today over a few races at Plumpton yesterday which weren't supported. When we have the horse, we are happy enough to run in them.
"Murphy's Cardinal has come out of Leopardstown pretty good and he's in excellent form at home - I was delighted with the way that he jumped in Ireland.
"I still think that he's a three-mile horse but he's won at two and a half miles. I'm not so sure whether he's as good at this trip as he is over three but we'll see on Saturday.
"Depending how he runs on Saturday, he's in the Daily Telegraph Festival Trophy Chase and the William Hill Handicap Chase and a couple of other races at Cheltenham. He's also still in the totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup and Saturday will tell us where to go - it could very well be the last named if he was impressive at Lingfield."
Among the possible opposition are the Martin Pipe-trained pair of It Takes Time and Seebald. The former was third in a handicap chase at Cheltenham on his last start on New Year's Day, while Seebald was only beaten a short-head by three-time totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup hero Best Mate in the William Hill Chase at Exeter in November.
Others include Forest Gunner, who won the betfair.com Grand Sefton Handicap Chase at Aintree by eight lengths in November, last year's totesport Gold Trophy Handicap Hurdle winner Geos, who could revert to the larger obstacles, and top novice Ollie Magern, the winner of the Totty Construction Towton Novices' Chase at Wetherby last time.
The card also features the £35,000 Grade Two Reynoldstown Novices' Chase (1.40pm), over three miles, which has drawn 16 possibles go to post for one of the most informative novice events of the season.
In 2004 this contest, when run at Ascot, went to Martin Pipe's totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup hopeful Our Vic, who easily got the better of a fine field by six lengths from Rosslea.
This year the champion trainer could be represented by Control Man, victorious in the bonusprint.com Novices' Chase at Cheltenham in December and a similar event at Exeter early in the New Year. Mark Pitman has the choice of Captain Corelli, a recent scorer at Leicester, and Too Forward, a Folkestone winner on January 3.
Other recent winners include Distant Thunder, who struck at Newbury last weekend, Jazz D'Estruval, who has landed his last two starts at Ayr and Haydock, beating Trabolgan by nine lengths at the latter venue, and the above-mentioned Ollie Magern.
TRAINERS SHUTTS, GEORGE AND MITCHELL TARGETING JOHN SMITH'S GRAND NATIONAL
The 2005 John Smith's Grand National weights were announced last Tuesday and Nick Shutts, Tom George and Ned Mitchell reveal today that they hope to have runners in the greatest jump race in the world which is staged at Aintree on Saturday, April 9.
Foly Pleasant (10st 11lb) was purchased out of Henrietta Knight's yard at Doncaster's May Sale for 100,000gns by Nick Shutts, who hopes to run the 10-year-old at the Cheltenham Festival before a tilt at the John Smith's Grand National.
The trainer said: "We are going to run Foly Pleasant in the Foxhunters at Cheltenham and the ideal plan would be to run in that, then send him to Karen Marks to train him for the John Smith's Grand National but clearly he would need to run fairish in the Foxhunters.
"Ginger McCain was underbidder for him - that's why he's got an entry in the National because Ginger must know something mustn't he!
"I guess we knew what his handicap mark was and the weight is relevant to the other horses in the National isn't it? He would be humping over 12st in his hunter chases so I guess 10st 11lb is fine."
Foly Pleasant was last seen under Rules when unplaced in last year's Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. He was successful in a point-to-point before finding Silence Reigns five lengths too powerful on his last start under Marc Barber in a hunters' chase at Bangor on February 11.
"We just gave him some time off and he won a point-to-point at Weston Park a couple of weeks before his Bangor run," continued Shutts.
"He's a horse that shows his best form at Cheltenham and he needs to come off a fast pace really. At Bangor there was no pace at all and he jumped to the front six out and was there to be shot at. Coming off a fast pace at Cheltenham will be a different kettle of fish.
"I have spoken to Terry Biddlecombe and Jim Culloty and they think he goes on any ground. If you have a look at his form, he goes on anything from good to heavy. So the ground is not too much of a worry in terms of Aintree and he definitely stays and he's a tough sort."
Asked how he thought his charge would handle the John Smith's Grand National fences, Shutts quipped: "Well I won't be phoning up for the ride! He doesn't get very high but, then again, he has jumped around Cheltenham many times and never fallen or looked likely to fall. So he takes a real good cut at his fences and we've been practising him at home and I don't see there's a problem at Aintree.
"At this stage Mr Barber riding in the Foxhunters would seem the plan but I haven't thought about who might ride him after that."
Tom George has kept his options open with a quartet of entries in the form of Lord Of Illusion (10st 6lb), Historic (10st), Be My Royal (9st 12lb) and Toulouse-Lautrec (8st 5lb).
"I'm pleased with the weights all of mine have received and as long as Historic gets a run, I'm happy," said the Gloucestershire-based trainer.
"Historic has got 10st while Lord Of Illusion is up in the air with what happens when he runs at Cheltenham. We thought we would enter him in the John Smith's Grand National to have another option and Be My Royal is also a possibility but I don't think he'll get in the race off 9st 12lb."
Historic was unchallenged when winning the williamhill.co.uk Marathon Chase at Sandown in December, staying on well to beat Innox by five lengths.
"Historic is in great form - he had a day's hunting last week to freshen him up a bit and we might take him hunting again. He's also in a few races later on this week," he continued.
"Hell be fine with the Aintree fences - put it this way, he did fine when hunting so he shouldn't have any problem with those!
Irish handler Ned Mitchell is keen to send over Garvivonnian (10st 1lb), winner of the Pierse Group Cork Grand National in November, providing the 10-year-old gets a run.
The County Limerick trainer said: "If we get into the John Smith's Grand National with Garvivonnian we will go, if we don't we can't! It will depend at the next stage how many stay in.
"I am very pleased with the 10st 1lb - he's running off top weight here all the time as he's at the top of the handicap and he's not good enough to take on the good horses. He ran in the Paddy Power Handicap at Leopardstown over Christmas carrying one of the top weights which is a hard task."
On his last start the gelding took a tumble two fences from home in the Grand National Trial Handicap Chase at Punchestown last month.
"He's come out of Punchestown fine and he'll probably run over three miles one furlong in the Bobbyjo Chase at Fairyhouse on Saturday.
"The Grand National has been the plan since his win at Cork - the owner [John Long] wanted to go last year for the Topham Chase so I kind of talked him out of it. I said if you're going, go for the big one!
"The fences at Aintree aren't really a worry - he's a very good lepper.' The first time he made a mistake was at Punchestown last time when I don't know what happened to him - it was very uncharacteristic of him altogether."
