Forecast rain encouraging L’Homme Presse group to go to Aintree



Connections of Cheltenham Competition hero L’Homme Presse are warming as much as the concept of an Aintree outing if the forecast rain falls in Liverpool subsequent week.

The gelding is unbeaten over fences in 5 runs to this point, a marketing campaign that has included a 21-length Scilly Isles Novices’ Chase success and a decisive win within the Brown Advisory on the Cheltenham Competition.

Co-owner Andy Edwards had beforehand said {that a} run within the three-mile-one-furlong Mildmay Novices’ Chase was not dominated out fully after the gelding’s Cheltenham heroics, however that his participation can be reliant on moist climate earlier than the Aintree assembly.

These situations could now materialise as rain is forecast over Merseyside this week and subsequently L’Homme Presse’s possibilities of lining up on Friday are elevated.

“With the forecast rain coming and assurances from Aintree that it is going to be very protected floor, we’re very a lot leaning in the direction of working him within the three-mile-one-furlong novice chase on Friday,” Edwards mentioned.

“He needs to run and is able to run and we’d love him to be there.”
