Might Bite to frank RSA form and beat Whisper in Mildmay at Aintree

Nicky Henderson's Might Bite and Whisper served up a memorable finish in the RSA Chase in last month's Cheltenham Festival, and the Seven Barrows duo will lock horns again on day two of Aintree's Grand National meeting in the Grade 1 Mildmay Novices' Chase, which will be one of the features on another star-studded card.

  • Might Bite beat Whisper in RSA Chase in dramatic fashion
  • Whisper has won twice at Aintree's National meeting (two Liverpool Hurdle wins)
  • Nicky Henderson last won this race in 2010 with Burton Port

Might Bite To Frank RSA Form With Whisper

Having kicked clear turning for home in the RSA Chase, Might Bite looked to have the race sewn up, but having jumped the last comfortably clear he then veered dramatically to his right up the run-in, and left the door open for Whisper to hit the front, but Nico de Boinville managed to straighten Might Bite up, who having been a length down heading into the final half-a-furlong, managed to just find some more in the tank, and he eventually won by a nose.

Now the pair will clash again on Friday afternoon, and it's no surprise to see Might Bite installed as the 8/13 favourite with Paddy Power, as he has been the dominant staying novice chaser this season, and while he was a late faller in the Kauto Star Novices' Chase at Kempton Park on Boxing Day he has been impressive on the rest of his chasing starts.

He could well be held on to a lot more in this contest, as de Boinville may not elect to kick for home so soon, but with such a high cruising speed then he should relish the speed of Aintree, and providing his jumping stays intact then it's hard to see him not landing another Grade 1 success.

Whisper The Obvious Danger

A dual winner of the Liverpool Hurdle at Aintree's Grand National meeting, Whisper is arguably a better horse around this track, so punters that are looking to take on Might Bite may enjoy snapping up the 11/4 available with BetVictor about the second string for the Henderson team winning here.

However, had Might Bite not swerved at Cheltenham then Whisper would've probably been beaten by at least six lengths, and providing the jolly here doesn't show any quirks, then you have to feel that Whisper may have to play a supporting role once again, and will finish runner-up yet again to his impressive stablemate.

Marinero Best Of The Rest

Henry de Bromhead's Marinero was a faller at the third fence in the RSA Chase last month, so he will be looking to improve on that effort here, but at 12/1 he is hard to fancy against the two Henderson runners, while both Virgilio (16/1) and Calett Mad (18/1) both lack the quality to down the main two market rivals, and they will have to settle for the minor honours in a race that can go the way of the jolly.
