Coral Pendil Novices’ Chase: Boothill and Datsalrightgino meet again

| 24.02.2023

Boothill leads the Coral Pendil Novices Chase betting ahead of Datsalrightgino as they meet again at Kempton on Saturday.

Datsalrightgino suffered a narrow defeat at the hands of Boothill at Newton Abbot and the betting suggests the same result again, with Boothill the 13/8 favourite while Datsalrightgino is 5/2.

Jamie Snowden’s seven-year-old enjoyed the step up in trip when second to Stage Star on Festival Trials day and receives 5lb from Harry Fry’s Wayward Lad winner as they rematch over a longer distance.

“He’s a smashing horse who has progressed all season,” said Snowden.

“He did well to win over two miles but has improved for going up to two and a half as you saw the last day when he chased home Stage Star at Cheltenham – that was a good performance.

“Obviously he reopposes Boothill, who he took on at Newton Abbot earlier in the season and Boothill now has a 5lb penalty for winning the Grade Two over Christmas.

“It’s a competitive little race, but hopefully he goes there with a decent chance with good prize money on offer.”

Paul Nicholls has an imperious record in this Grade Two contest winning it six times in the last 10 years.

He has sent out the Coral Pendil Novices’ Chase victor in the past two seasons and looks to bring up the hat-trick with 7/2 shot Solo, who won the Coral Adonis Juvenile Hurdle on this day in 2020 and arrives on the back of a wind operation with some smart chasing form in the book.

Nicky Henderson’s Tweed Skirt and Dan Skelton’s Jay Jay Reilly are also engaged and are 6/1 and 14/1 respectively in the Coral Pendil Novices Chase odds.
