Sandown on Tap Night radarHeadlines
Tap Night

Tap Night is shortly to embark on a chasing career and one of his options is Saturday's Markel Insurance Henry VIII Novices' Chase at Sandown.

The five-year-old gelding is Lucinda Russell's first horse for powerful owner JP McManus, who snapped him up after his victory in a handicap hurdle at Ayr last month.

He was capable of defeating Captain Conan in a Grade Two novice hurdle at Kelso last season, and Nicky Henderson's representative has been entered in the same race at the Esher course after his impressive chasing debut at Cheltenham.

"Everything's a bit up in the air at the moment - he's in all over the place, including over hurdles, but he's more likely to go chasing," said Russell.

"He has schooled well, and done nothing wrong so far. I might find him a beginners' chase somewhere instead, but we'll wait and see."

There are eight entries in the Grade One over two miles, including the top-class hurdler Overturn, who won well over course and distance a month ago but may need a different rider with his usual partner Jason Maguire set to be in action at Aintree.

Russell will certainly have a runner at Sandown on Friday, with Carlisle winner Bold Sir Brian engaged in the Sportingbet Future Stars Chase.

"He'll almost certainly go there," said the Kinross trainer.
