A couple of tips from Chepstow on Friday, coming right up…

Starting with Dan Skelton’s HEEZER GEEZER in the 2m7½f novices’ hurdle at 2.30.

The six-year-old boasts solid form this season, and at 129 is rated 10lbs+ superior to his six rivals.

Therefore, the 7lb penalty he carries for winning at Hereford just before Christmas – a strong piece of form – doesn’t overly concern me.

Well Dick for Charlie Longsdon also has a penalty, while the other two likely rivals – Inch House and State Of Power – have a bit to prove when it comes to the form book.

I’m hoping that Heezer Geezer, who holds an entry for the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, relishes the step up to just shy of three-miles on ground that should be perfect for him and makes it two on the bounce.

Half-an-hour later there’s a competitive-looking novices’ handicap chase, and I’m really sweet on the chances of SUPER SURVIVOR for Jamie Snowden.

On the back of his course and distance success over Nicky Henderson’s talented Mister Coffey – albeit when in receipt of a very handy 15lbs – he’s only been put up 5lbs by the handicapper, which I believe to be extremely generous.

Snowden, who’s operating at a decent 21% strike rate in the last 14 days, looks to have found a nice opportunity for the seven-year-old son of Shantou to continue climbing the ranks here,

Monbeg Genius is a big threat but has the burden of top weight, while Chris Down’s Raddon Top could be well ahead of his mark – but I get the impression that the selection is simply the best horse in the race.
