1,092/1 Racing Post Weekender Acca!

The clocks have gone back and the jumps season is well and truly alive.

It feels like a real National Hunt weekend with the Ladbrokes Champion Chase at Down Royal headlining our horse racing tips for Saturday afternoon, with the Charlie Hall Chase an attention grabber up at Wetherby.

Luke Parkinson has taken a look through this week’s edition of the Racing Post Weekender and put together a 1,092/1 acca.

Road To Respect (2:25 Down Royal – Saturday)

Cathal Gahan

Down Royal is the only place to start on Saturday and Road To Respect can repeat his last year’s win in the three-mile Grade One Ladbrokes Champion Chase.

Noel Meade has his string in decent shape and this eight-year-old wasn’t far off the best stayers last term.

His jumping tended to let him down a bit at times, but his Grade One-winning days are far from behind him.

Unowhatimeanharry (3:05 Wetherby – Saturday)

Stuart Redding

Unowhatimeanharry had a mixed record last season but the veteran showed he can still mix it at the highest level.

Having won at Newbury in November, he rolled back the years again at Punchestown in May, winning a Grade One staying hurdle by three lengths.

The eleven-year-old has to shoulder a six-pound penalty for that success but has the class to do so in this lesser company.

Mister Malarky (3:20 Ascot – Saturday)

Stuart Redding

Mister Malarky enjoyed a successful first campaign over fences last winter and can take another step forward by landing this valuable heat.

Arguably his career-best effort was a Grade Two win over course and distance in February and, although the RSA proved a bit too hot, he ended his campaign with a close second behind the seriously well-handicapped Kildisart at Aintree.

That showed that the Colin Tizzard-trained six-year-old can be competitive in these big-field handicaps.

Top Ville Ben (3:40 Wetherby – Saturday)

Norman Chorley

Phil Kirby posted a fantastic treble on bet365 Charlie Hall Chase day at Wetherby last season and is set for more success on the same card on Saturday, including in the main event this time.

The stable’s Top Ville Ben has something to find with the main players in the three-mile Grade Two event, but others might be using the race as a stepping stone to bigger races whereas the seven-year-old has had this as his target for some time.

Sean Quinlan’s mount visited Wetherby twice last season and on each occasion, he romped home in novice chases.

The pair can be expected to make this a good test from the front and exploit any rustiness or early-season fitness issues in higher-rated rivals.
