Sunday, 02 July 2023

There are a maximum fourteen runners who can go to post for this encounter at Cartmel Racecourse, with the Oakmere Homes Handicap Chase taking place at 2.05pm on Sunday 2 July. Arctic Ambition could be the best handicapped runner in the field, with Marshalled a JP McManus-owned runner who has hit the frame twice this season.

Ubetya was successful in his previous outing, with the Jedd O’Keeffe-trained charge lining up along with the Gordon Elliott-trained Walking The Walk. The horse ended a consecutive hat-trick of runner-up performances before landing a victory and the eight-year-old could deliver over two miles and five furlongs.

Arctic Ambition is well down the pecking order when it comes to the weights for this chase race, with the eight-year-old lining up as the favourite to land a success in the Oakmere Homes Handicap Chase. The Gordon Elliott-trained charge has been performing well since winning in Kilbeggan in April over two miles and three furlongs.

More recently, there have been victories at Limerick and Ballinrobe, with the latest being over two miles and six furlongs when winning a handicap hurdle, although it remains to be seen how the horse will perform back over the bigger obstacles. Marshalled is another runner that catches the eye and the nine-year-old is carrying 11-1.

Ben Haslam’s charge has already won at Newcastle Racecourse on the all-weather this season, with the horse winning at odds of 11/2 over two miles and four furlongs. Marshalled was then sent off as the 2/1 favourite in the Molson Coors Handicap Chase when going close to a victory when being narrowly beaten by Ubetya who also lines up in this encounter.

Ubetya is carrying an extra pound for this outing although the horse is not without a chance and Henry Brooke could be about to guide the runner to a victory. Trainer Jedd O’Keeffe was delighted by the upturn in form at Cartmel which came after some poor showings at Carlisle and Newcastle, with his jumping set to hold up again.
