Betfair Chase Shines At Haydock, As Faugheen Returns At Ascot

An array of National Hunt stars will provide some enthralling action over the weekend and the major highlight of the weekend will come at Haydock Park as a plethora of elite staying chasers will lock horns in the Grade 1 Betfair Chase at 3:00pm.

Cue Card was victorious in the race 12 months ago beating Dynaste and Silviniaco Conti with aplomb and that classy triumvirate will do battle again, whilst you can't discount Taquin Du Seuil and Menorah who are top class on their day and should play their part.

Elsewhere on a cracking card from the Lancashire venue, The New One will aim to bag his second win of the season and the Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained charge will be sent off a red-hot favourite for the Betfair Price Rush Hurdle at 1:50pm, whilst Nicky Henderson's Volnay De Thaix will look to carry top weight to victory in the ultra-competitive Betfair Fixed Brush Handicap Hurdle at 2:25pm.

Ascot will host a terrific jumping alternative on Saturday and the unbeaten Neptune winner Faugheen will make his seasonal reappearance in the Coral Hurdle at 2:40pm and Willie Mullins raider will be aiming to cement his place at the top of the Champion Hurdle ante-post market.

Al Ferof will bid for back-to-back wins in the Amlin 1965 Chase earlier on in the afternoon at 2:05pm and he will face a stiff test from the likes of Old Roan winner Wishfull Thinking and the Henderson-trained Rajdhani Express in what is another cracking Graded race on a mouth-watering afternoon of action over the sticks.
