Alan Thompson has two racing choices for Tuesday, one at Wincanton coming back from a lengthy break and the opposite growing into a course specialist at Newcastle…
Diese Des Bieffes can win for Nicholls
One horse I’m actually eager about seeing run on Tuesday is Betfair Ambassador Paul Nicholls’ placing seven-year-old gray Diese Des Bieffes. We have not see him on a course for 972 days, however the Nicholls group are well-known for doing extraordinarily effectively together with his French imports and I’ve a feeling that Diese Des Bieffes may very well be one other of these. Last time we noticed him run was when profitable a handicap hurdle at Cheltenham in 2018 for Nicky Henderson over this journey. He clearly has had his points since however the reality he’s now with the Nicholls group, has just lately undergone wind surgical procedure and goes over fences for the primary time is very fascinating.
He ran six occasions over hurdles profitable three of them and acquiring a mark of 138 within the course of, together with a fifth within the 2018 renewal of the Martin Pipe. Make no mistake this shall be a super coaching effort to get him prepared after 972 days off the course. But he may very well be a class above these rivals and on his solution to greater and higher occasions.
Perfect Swiss is difficult to oppose at Newcastle
There aren’t too many jockeys that journey Newcastle in addition to Phil Dennis and he appears to have a plum journey in Perfect Swiss for coach Tim Easterby. The four-year-old is within the type of his life at current with two wins and three runner-up finishes from his final 5 begins. He is up 2lb for his most up-to-date success, however with course and distance kind figures of 117221, he appears to excel at this straight mile and with Dennis on board once more at this time the pair look onerous to beat once more.
The one to concern may very well be Pacino, the Richard Fahey charge working within the Dr Marwan Koukash colors. It could also be 17 runs since his final win in 2019 however a creditable third of 10 in handicap at Wolverhampton 24 days in the past adopted a second right here over course and distance. These two efforts recommend he has dropped far sufficient down the handicap to be a main risk. However, I feel he might need to accept second place once more at this time.
