Preview extract

The Kivells-sponsored men’s open looks to be the feature race having attracted nine strong entries and is a qualifier for the Timico Mixed Open finals to be held at Cheltenham in May. Prolific winning horse Premier Portrait won here at the December meeting for the Guy Levington team, with son Gus snatching the race in the final 75 yards. Blazing Whale is another with a good chance, with six of his twelve wins won in Open company and finished last season with a second in a Hunter Chase at Fontwell for the Ed Walker team. Full Trottle, who won the mixed-open at Black Forest Lodge in November under jockey Johnny Bailey, is sure to put up another bold show if turning up here for trainer Laura Thomas.
