Record Racing; Sheer speed can make it a double.

Turn back the clock and stick with Sheer Jest (3.45) in today's Foxhunters' Chase. He demonstrated how to handle the Grand National fences with a comfortable victory in this race last year under today's pilot. Sheer Jest would have cruised in at Doncaster last month but made an uncharacteristic blunder at the second last. His pace on the searching run-in can snatch the spoils. The Melling Chase is a mouth-watering treat and on this faster surface and extra trip SOUND MAN (2.35) can take his Cheltenham Champion Chase revenge on Klairon Davis and last year's victor Viking Flagship. Hill Of Tullow injured himself on the short trip from David Nicholson's yard to Cheltenham, and had to miss the Sun Alliance Chase. He comes here fresh and well to defend a five-race unbeaten sequence. But the Mildmay track was riding fast yesterday and with the premium on accurate fencing I side with ADDINGTON BOY (3.10). He slaughtered a field of seasoned handicappers in the Great Yorkshire Chase at Doncaster and handles quick ground. Mary Reveley has always found Aintree a happy hunting ground and TURNPOLE (4.20) quickened nicely to beat Sparky Gale at Newcastle. Sixteen runners go to post in the handicap hurdle and GOLDEN HELLO (4.50) will carry my chunky each way bet now that he has got his favoured ground.
