    Insight from Trainers on the Coral Trophy Handicap Chase

    Anthony Honeyball’s Trio Ready to Shine in Coral Trophy at Kempton

    Anthony Honeyball is set to unleash a trio of contenders in the prestigious Coral Trophy at Kempton this Saturday. These three talented horses are primed and ready to showcase their skills on the big stage.

    Forward Plan Eyes Victory

    Leading the charge is Forward Plan, an eight-year-old gelding who narrowly missed out on victory in his last outing at Doncaster. Despite that close defeat, he has shown immense potential with three wins in his last eight races over fences. With a current career-high rating of 133, jockey Ben Godfrey’s claim will help lighten his handicap burden as he carries a competitive weight of 10st 9lb.

    Honeyball expressed confidence in Forward Plan’s adaptability to various ground conditions, citing his preference for goodish ground. The upcoming race at Aintree looms large on the horizon for this promising contender.

    Blackjack Magic Seeks Success on Soft Ground

    The stables’ second hopeful, Blackjack Magic, kicked off the season impressively by clinching victory at Wincanton before finishing fourth at Ascot. Known for excelling on testing ground, Blackjack Magic is anticipated to thrive under soft conditions at Kempton. Trainer Anthony Honeyball remains optimistic about his chances given the favorable racing surface.

    Veteran Chaser Sam Brown Defies Odds

    The third entry from Honeyball’s yard is veteran chaser Sam Brown, shouldering top weight under Jonathan Burke. Despite being considered an outsider due to age and high rating, Sam Brown showcased his determination with a recent win at Warwick. While facing stiff competition, Honeyball believes Sam Brown could surprise skeptics with a strong performance if everything falls into place during the race.

    Bowtogreatness – Ben Pauling’s Dark Horse

    Bowtogreatness presents trainer Ben Pauling with another shot at glory as he prepares for his upcoming start after missing out on Ascot due to health concerns detected during routine checks. Jointly owned by Harry Redknapp and showing promise ahead of future engagements including potential entries for Cheltenham Festival – Bowtogreatness represents hope amidst uncertainty within Pauling’s camp following their recent successes.
