Racing: Punters' Guide; The Toiseach gets vote of confidence
The former top jump jockey Steve Smith Eccles analyses today's Great Yorkshire Chase
Saturday 30 January 1999
Mr Strong Gale: Always runs well and could make the frame.
Lively Knight: Having his first run of the season and goes well when fresh. Stable out of form.
The Last Fling: Stays forever but makes jumping errors.
Capenwray: I expect this trip to be beyond him.
Blue Charm: Runs well in his own class but out of his depth.
Profluent: Faller when beaten last time, so best watched.
Glitter Isle: Ran a cracker behind Eudipe at Sandown last time. A reproduction of that form will see him go close.
Frazer Island: Does not look good enough.
Chipped Out: Has won two out of four this season but against weaker opposition.
Cab On Target: Defies advancing years and is sure to put up a brave performance.
Tullymurry Toff: Needs to improve on a poor run last time.
In Truth: Well beaten in his last three runs but this Festival winner does relish Town Moor.
Naiysari: Should strip fitter for run behind Mr Strong Gale but may lack the class to figure.
Noyan: No form this season.
Major Bell: Without a win since 1996 and will have to wait a little longer.
Ask Me Later: Out of his league.
Symbol Of Success: Simply not up to it.
Carlingford Gale: Tough, consistent mare who runs well in her own class.
Jefferies: This Taunton winner could do well off a light weight.
Conclusion: THE TOISEACH has been given plenty of time to get over his flop in the Hennessy and can prove what a class horse he really is. Glitter Isle should figure on the evidence of his run behind Eudipe last time.
