Top tipster Andrew Mount has one pick for Tuesday along with an antepost advice for one of Saturday’s big jumps races. Andrew is away for a few day to celebrate his 50th Birthday and his next column will be on Friday, March 20
POWERSBOMB has faced some tough tasks since scoring at Clonmel in November and he again shaped as though the return to 2m4f were needed when fifth at Thurles last month. That form has received a couple of boosts, with fourth home Grand Partner winning easily at Leopardstown next time and the third, Mitchouka, running sixth to Imperial Aura at the Cheltenham festival. He looks the answer to the veterans’ handicap chase at Wexford on Tuesday.
CLAUD AND GOLDIE [(3.00 Kelso, Saturday)]()
CLAUD AND GOLDIE really caught the eye at Haydock in the Peter Marsh Chase in January, doing second best of those to come from off the pace in a 25-1 fourth of ten. The track was massively favouring front-runners that day and it was a huge effort to finish where he did from 3lb out of the handicap proper. The veteran has a good record at Kelso – form figures of 3131 (2-4) – suggesting each-way claims in the 3m2f Liz Adam Memorial Handicap Chase on Saturday. He was only beaten by a couple of lengths in the race last year and can be backed at 12-1 with Ladbrokes and Coral. Please remember this is an antepost market and we will lose our money if he does not run.
