The bookmakers have picked Bobby Bow as early favorites for this handicap pursuit and while the chances of Ben Pauling’s lightly run 9-year-old aren’t ruled out, it will be his pursuit debut after a 20-month absence, and he’ ll need to be on his game if he wants to beat BLACK BURNS in the Happy Birthday Lynn 3AS Handicap Chase.
Brulure Noire was well backed to score on his debut for Richard Bandey over hurdles at Southwell in March, and while he was running below form there he made no mistake on his chasing debut over 2m here in November, jumping and traveling well, before staying on strong to score.
Having already gained over 2m3f in heavy ground in Limerick for Shark Hanlon, and being linked with winners at 3m+, this stage of travel could easily bring more improvement, and I see no good reason why he can’t follow.

A quick word for an old friend in Fix Zambezi, who again has his conditions, but it is worth noting that the tongue tie and cheeks were removed after his effort at Leicester. He was well beaten there and didn’t run one of his best runs, but he still traded well under half his Betfair SP in the run, and he could easily go lower than that today. today if he travels a little better.
It’s also worth noting that this will only be his second start at Ffos Las, odd given the coach’s location, but there’s every chance he would have won his only other start here if he hadn’t gone down on his best moves in the later stages. . There’s also every chance he was second or third, mind you, and any profit on him will come from markets or trading pre-race position in the race given his frustrating profile.

The roars rose from this column when Spitfire Girl hit the front during the run-in at Uttoxeter last time out as we were soft on her chances, but those roars were slightly premature as Flintara battled to nail her to the line. That’s life.
In our eyes, she did nothing wrong, with the pair straying well away from third and she simply found Flintara in no mood to be denied. Increased by 6 pounds for this, she goes back on the trip, which is a plus for her breeding, and she also had recent wind surgery, so relations must have felt a little tweaking was needed. Proven in heavy going, having finished second in a Warwick bumper last year, it has more to offer and can reward us today.
