    Timeform have spotted one ...

    Having disputed the lead for much of the way, Our Mick was still firmly in contention when jumping badly left at the third-last fence in Katenko's race on Saturday, cannoning into the eventual winner and unseating Jason Maguire. Though failing to complete, Donald McCain's grey showed enough to enhance his Festival claims and a return to the JLT Handicap Chase, the three-mile contest in which he finished third last year, looks to be on the cards. In fact, Saturday's race was Our Mick's first start since he posted that career-best effort behind Alfie Sherrin at Cheltenham and, given his largely progressive profile, he could still be fairly treated.

    Only two favourites have won since 1977
    Only one winner has carried 11 stone or more for 13 years
    No winner rated over 150 in the last 30 years
    11yo and older horses are unplaced (0-40) since1997
    Horses aged seven to 10 have won the last 14 renewals
    11 of the last 13 winners have won over at least 3 miles
    10 of the last 13 winners were placed in the first three last time out
    11 of the last 13 winners had run no more than 11 times over fences
    11 of the last 13 winners had run no more than four times that season
    Nine out of the last 12 winners were in the first four in the betting
    Nine of the last 13 winners went of at SP’s between 5/1 and 10/1
    Six of the last 10 winners won their previous outing
    Six of Nicky Henderson’s last 13 runners have won or been placed

    Looks like it could be a decent enough race this time. Midnight Chase in the mix too.

    just for the record

    Permit holder Jessica Westwood is dreaming of Cheltenham after Monkerty Tunkerty, her only horse in training, won the 32Red Casino Veterans' Handicap Chase at Doncaster. Westwood set out from her base at Minehead in Somerset at 6.30am but it proved to be a worthwhile five-hour journey as she now has a contender for the JLT Specialty Handicap Chase.

    The 11/4 favourite shrugged aside a decent field of seasoned campaigners in just his fourth handicap to show he would not be out of place at next month's Festival.The former hunter chase and point-to-pointer put his head in front three out and stuck to his task well to beat Marufo by two and three-quarter lengths, with West End Rocker another three-quarters of a length away in third. "He's my first runner here and he's my only horse in training. I have a bumper horse who might run later in the spring," said Westwood.
    "I've always liked coming here as I had success leading horses up when I worked for trainers like Jeremy Scott and Philip Hobbs.
    "He's still learning and made a few mistakes because they went such a gallop and he's not used to that. It took five hours to get here but was definitely worth it. "He's in the JLT Specialty and the Byrne Plate, but I think the former race over three miles will be the one."
