Consistent Six-Year-Old To Defy Top Weight

27th December 2018, 21:46 by Gerard Lees

Mare Ready To Benefit From Extra Distance

The Harry Fry trained MOMELLA has run in some high-grade races and though being at the head of the weights can take advantage of what looks like a drop in class today in the 32Red Casino Mares' Handicap Hurdle over an extended three miles. She last took on some top performers at Newbury, and the form book says that she came down two out. In fact, she was going as well, if not better than anything in the field in that event and actually jumped the hurdle proficiently before stumbling a stride after the obstacle and coming down. If she had won that race - a distinct possibility - she would be odds-on today. The event was actually won by Unowhatimeanharry, who was going well enough when falling at the eighth in the Long Walk on Saturday, with Clyne, a winner of his penultimate race in second and The Mighty Don in third. The latter had won a 20-runner Cheltenham handicap in October, so there isn't much wrong with the form. Reference to past races shows the mare has having won two point-to-points over three miles and getting four positives for the staying prowess of the progeny of her sire, Sholokhov. CULTURE DE SIVOLA is next best on BTO ratings and stats and the Seamus Mullins trained JUBILYMPICS is being backed but Coral's 11/8 about Momella looks fair.
