15:00 Kempton – Angels Breath 5/6 (BV) 2nd

Angels Breath was highly regarded prior to his debut for Nicky Henderson and didn’t disappoint when we finally got to see him on a racecourse, travelling well before asserting in the home straight to win by over four lengths. He was limited to just four jumps and wasn’t as fluent as some of his more experienced rivals, but it was hard not to be impressed with the manner that he breezed to the front and given that it was his first outing for the stable he will also have learnt a lot from that experience (although it is worth noting that most of his rivals that day have raced again since and none have done anything to suggest that the form is particularly strong)

With just a couple of weeks to go until Cheltenham some would argue that this is just a warm-up for the Supreme and the result isn’t important, others will argue it is a must-win if he is to be a serious Supreme contender…. personally I think that class is class and Nicky Henderson wants to win as many races as possible so I fully expect Angels Breath to do the business here today.

Others to consider include Scarlet Dragon who was an impressive winner at Huntingdon a couple of weeks back (2nd and 4th have won since) and can be expected to improve as that was his first attempt over hurdles, while Rouge Vif has won two of his last three and was only a couple of lengths behind another Supreme hope in Mister Fisher at Kempton on Boxing Day so also brings decent form to the table.

15:15 Lingfield – Wissahickon 1/3 (B365) WON
