Chepstow Thursday Nap from Newsboy plus Newcastle and Chelmsford tips

GALOP DE CHASSE can take his tally for Venetia Williams to two from two with a victory in the Cazoo Handicap Chase (2.50) at Chepstow.

Having won one of his nine outings when trained in France, the six-year-old made his debut for Williams in a novices’ handicap chase at Lingfield Park five days before Christmas.

The market liked my selection’s chances – Galop De Chase was sent off the 5-2 favourite in a field of five – and Charlie Deutsch’s mount justified the support with a five-and-a-half-length margin from Golden Boy Grey.

That success came on heavy ground, so today’s rain-soaked surface in Monmouthshire will present no problems for a horse who can make further progress in the hands of his in-form trainer and overcome a 7lb rise in the weights.

At Chelmsford City, SEMSER is taken to back up a success at Lingfield 22 days ago as he takes on nine opponents for the Betsi Handicap (7.00).

After an unlucky-in-running third at Wolverhampton on his penultimate outing, Gary Moore’s son of Siyouni went two better with a neck margin from Lady Pendragon in the middle of last month.

Semser is expected to cope with the step back from a mile and a half to 10 furlongs and a 1lb nudge up the weights is by no means insurmountable.
