    Punters Can Stand To Attention For Sub Lieutenant In Melling Chase

    Friday 7th April 2017, 3.25pm - Melling Chase (Aintree)

    Few races can match the roll of honour of the Grade 1 Melling Chase with names like Moscow Flyer, Sprinter Sacre and Master Minded all rolling off the tongue. We might not have a horse of that calibre in the field this season but we do have plenty of top class animals lined up for what is a clash of the Champion Chase and Ryanair horses from Cheltenham.

    • Irish trained horses have won two of the last three renewals - Boston Bob and Don Cossack
    • The last horse to win the race two years on the bounce was Voy Por Ustedes in

    Top Class Trio At The Head Of The Market

    The Melling is always a good race for punters to sink their teeth into and that is the case once again with three very good horses fighting for favouritism at the head of the market.

    Chief among those is the defending champion God's Own who will be looking to become the first horse since Voy Por Ustedes to win the Melling Chase twice on the bounce. He ran a solid race in the Champion Chase and will enjoy the good ground, which means plenty will fancy him at 7/2 with Ladbrokes.

    Fox Norton (3/1) was a staying on 2nd in the Champion Chase last month and connections have said that the step up in trip should suit the talented chaser. Officially rated the best of these, he is sure to run well and there is no reason to believe he won't frank that God's Own form once again.

    The third horse at the top of the market is the Ryanair Chase runner-up Sub Lieutenant who was the only horse who managed to get close to the brilliant Un De Sceaux last month. The Henry De Bromhead trained chaser has only been beaten by the aforementioned UDS, Sizing John and Djakadam all season, and with conditions expected to suit, plenty will fancy him at 7/2 with Hills.

    Best Of the Rest?

    Uxizandre (7/1) at his bets would have a massive chance on Friday but the jury remains out after he returned from long term injury. He ran an ok race in the Ryanair Chase having been taken on for the lead, and he will need to be allowed to bowl along in front to have any chance of rolling back the years in this company.

    Kylemore Lough (12/1) is hugely underrated and more than deserves his place in this company for Kerry Lee. He is one that rarely runs a bad race and won't be disgraced but on quick ground, he could well get outpaced by some of these classier types.

    We should also mention Josses Hill (12/1) who at his best is a very classy animal, and he too seems to have sorted out his jumping this season. A flat track will suit this quirky animal and he might just out-run his odds, although he does tend to fall just below top level.

    Conclusion

    Punters need to decide if they prefer the Ryanair or the Champion Chase form when making their selections here. On balance it is the Ryanair Chase that stands out in the mind and Sub Lieutenant is due his moment in the sunshine. His run behind Un De Sceaux puts him ahead of this field and with a brilliant trainer on his side, he is the selection.
