Park Bids For RP Trophy Glory, As Old Roan Chase Shines At Aintree

Andrew Balding's Elm Park was last seen landing the Group 2 Royal Lodge Stakes and the progressive Phoenix Reach colt will attempt to build on that effort on Saturday in Doncaster's Racing Post Trophy, which is one of the feature events of the day at 3:50pm.

He will have some notable juveniles to beat and Aidan O'Brien has won this race seven times before and he will unleash a dual-pronged attack in the shape of Jacobean and Aloft, whilst Sir Mark Prescott's Celestial Path is another smart two-year-old bidding for Group 1 glory.

The National Hunt season continues to click into gear and Aintree will host a cracking fixture over the jumps and the highlight comes at 3:00pm with last season's JLT Novices' Chase runner-up aiming to land victory in the Old Roan Chase, where he will meet the likes of Module and Rajdhani Express in the 2m 4f contest.

Chepstow will host some decent alternative racing over the sticks and Nicky Henderson's exciting Son Du Berlais will aim to build on an eye-catching debut at Newton Abbot by winning the Persian War Novices' Hurdle at 3:35pm, but last week's Cheltenham winner Vicente and Alan King's The Pirate's Queen are a brace of lively players.

Newbury will have a decent seven-race card on the level and Richard Hannon will saddle three runners in the Group 3 Horris Hill Stakes at 1:50pm with Lexington Times appearing to be his primary player, whilst Saeed Bin Suroor's Sky Hunter will be the one to beat in the Group 3 St Simon Stakes at 2:20pm.
