Snap up the 13/8 about Thatsy (2.05 Galway) while you can. Looked top drawer when winning in a bumper for Gordon Elliott last season (beating subsequent winner Multifactorial) and I can’t believe he’s not favourite today.

Wouldn’t be surprised if he goes off odds on after getting smashed up this morning.

Persian War Novices Hurdle ante-post

Jamie Snowden and Gavin Sheehan were second in last year’s Persian War with Double Treasure but have a big chance of going one better in the Chepstow Grade 2 this Friday with Some Day Soon.

Available at a generous 11/1, the six-year-old son of Robin Des Champs has been thriving over the summer, racking up four wins on the bounce, the latest of which saw him give 10lbs to Rebecca Curtis’ Ruthless Article and still win very cosily.

This fella isn’t just a summer hurdler though – his second to Southfield Stone in November last year being a piece of form that reads particularly well, with Paul Nicholls’ charge going on to win the Dovecoat and contest a Grade 1 at Aintree in the spring.

Unlike many of his rivals, Some Day Soon comes into the race hard fit and looks primed to run a big race. The only worry is the weather. Seen to best effect on decent ground, the Snowden team will be hoping there isn’t too much rain in Monmouthshire this week.
