Henderson looks to Fisher to reel in Warwick’s feature event

Wednesday’s racing comes over the jumps from Chepstow, Hexham and Warwick, as well as all-weather action from Kempton and Dundalk.

The pick of the jumping comes from Warwick, where there’s a high class novice chase and another edition of the popular veterans’ chase series.

Grade 2 winning novice hurdler Mister Fisher heads the betting, though he’ll face stern opposition such as Lisp, consistent in most of the top Grade 3 handicap hurdles last season, Nigel Twiston-Davies’ mud loving four year old Torpillo, who won first time up this season at Chepstow last month, and the Skelton’s representative Not That Fuisse, who posted a smart effort when splitting Al Dancer and Getaway Trump at Cheltenham.

The veterans’ chase is another interesting vent on paper, though it’s hard to be hugely confident with any of the six runners in terms of recent form.

The pick could be Theatre Guide, who went well enough in a similar contest at Aintree last time out, though whoever the winner proves to be, it’ll be great to grand old sorts such as Milansbar and King’s Odyssey competing amongst their peers again.

Getaway Fred got close to Sunday’s Cheltenham Grade 2 winner Hang In There at Exeter last time out and is an odds on favourite to beat Cap Du Mathan in a tidy novice hurdle at Exeter, whilst

there’s black type action on flat at Kempton in the Hyde Stakes. This year’s edition looks a particularly strong renewal, with former British Champions Day hero Librisa Breeze amongst a field containing recent winners and market leaders Khuzaam and War Glory. That being said, a return to form from any of last season’s Queen Anne victor Accidental Agent, Oh This Is Us, Preening or early season 1000 Guineas candidate Dandhu should see them well capable of winning a race at this level.
