Charlie Longsdon: Double-handed at Warwick

Charlie Longsdon: Double-handed at Warwick

Charlie Longsdon's prolific winner Pete The Feat will attempt to stretch his unbeaten run to six in Saturday's Betfred Classic Chase at Warwick.

Having risen 40lb in the handicap since joining Longsdon, he put up another impressive display to take the Mandarin Chase at Newbury two weeks ago.

Longsdon also runs Universal Soldier, a disappointment at Chepstow last Saturday in the Welsh National.

Colin Tizzard has decided against declaring last year's winner Hey Big Spender, however, and, along with the absence of Cappa Bleu, the weights are set to rise significantly.

Robin Dickin runs his stable star Restless Harry, while Fergal O'Brien saddles Bradley, just touched off by subsequent Welsh National winner Monbeg Dude two runs back.

Alan King has a good record in the race and relies upon the novice Godsmejudge, with Venetia Williams' Rigadin De Beauchene also engaged.

Auroras Encore is now set to head the weights for Sue Smith, with Benheir, Quentin Collonges, Wellforth and Major Malarkey also among a final field of 13.
