2m4f (2m4f10y) Betway Scilly Isles Novices’ Chase (Grade 1) (Class 1) (5yo+)
I’m backing ITCHY FEET to get the better of star mare Laurina, who has to put a disappointing effort last time out behind her. She apparently bled so perhaps can be excused that run, but it wasn’t the first time in her career she has flopped. Itchy Feet was a staying on third in last season’s Supreme Novices’ Hurdle and represents the in-form Murphy yard. He looked a natural over fences on his chasing debut and went some way to proving he stays this longer trip – although Grade 1 pace is something else entirely. There are plenty of possible winners in this race if Laurina disappoints, but Itchy Feet has the most scope to improve over fences and 13/2 is worth chancing.
