Horse Racing – La Baque Au Roi to take on Glen Forsa

Warren Greatrex has decided that La Bague Au Roi will race in the Manifesto Novices' Chase at Aintree on Thursday rather than Friday's Mildmay Novices' Chase. Greatrex has looked at the weather forecast which is predicting more rain and concluded that the prospect of soft ground on Friday would not suit La Bague Au Roi who will run in the shorter race instead. "We've decided to go for the Grade One on Thursday which is the opening race of the meeting," he said. "We felt that with the rain they've had and a bit more in the forecast that Friday's race over the longer trip could turn into a bit of a slog." La Bague Au Roi emerged victorious at the Kauto Star Novices' Chase at Kempton over three miles at Christmas and is 7/4 with bet365 to win the Manifesto Novices' Chase while Glen Forsa, a faller in the Arkle at Cheltenham last month, is 7/2 to triumph.
