2:25pm Betway Mersey Novices' Hurdle (Grade 1) 2m4f

This year's Mersey is looking a decidedly weak race. Angels Breath really struggled for pace in the Supreme and has failed to build on the promise of his debut victory. Chosen Mate brings Grade Two winning form with him over from Ireland, with many of the other runners jumping up in class after running in a handicap last time out. 

The strongest contender in the field has to be BREWIN’UPASTORM (9/4 Paddy Power) and I fancy he will hand Olly Murphy a first Grade One as a trainer.

Many predicted Brewin’Upastorm would challenge for the places in the Ballymore at Cheltenham, having fallen when mounting a winning challenge in the Classic on Trial’s Day. Richard Johnson held his mount up at the rear, moving smoothly into contention at the top of the hill and the pair entered the home straight with Champ and City Island firmly in the cross-hairs.

Sadly, Murphy’s six-year-old couldn’t find that extra gear, weaving across the track approaching the last and allowing Bright Forecast to come through to claim third. Still, that was an excellent effort in what could be a very good renewal of the Ballymore. Aintree will suit a big, chasing type like Brewin’Upastorm and soft ground shouldn't be an issue at all. I expect to see Olly Murphy celebrating on Grand National day.
