McCain on duty at WetherbyHeadlines
Super Duty

Cheltenham clues could be in the offing at Wetherby as Super Duty tackles the totepool Towton Novices' Chase over three miles and a furlong of the West Yorkshire track.

Donald McCain's charge got off the mark for the campaign at Cheltenham in December and is entered in the RSA Chase and Jewson Novices' Chase at the Festival in March.

The seven-year-old had high-class form over hurdles, chasing home Simonsig at Aintree in April.

McCain said: "Super Duty is in grand form at the moment and I am very happy with him. I always thought he would make a better chaser and the Towton looks the obvious race to go for before we decide what we are doing at Cheltenham.

"He is a better horse on better ground, but he has been winning on soft ground so it shouldn't stop him unduly."

Local handler Sue Smith, who was the leading trainer at Wetherby last season, will be represented by progressive seven-year-old Fill The Power.

Smith's husband, Harvey, said: "Fill The Power is in good form and we are hoping there is more to come from him because he is progressing well. He ran a good race last time and will see out the trip all right."

Goulanes, trained by David Pipe and partnered by Tom Scudamore, will be having his first start over fences after a brief but successful career over hurdles.

A point-to-point winner in Ireland, the seven-year-old triumphed on his hurdling debut at Newbury in March before a courageous neck success in a Listed handicap hurdle at Cheltenham in November.

The line-up also includes Restless Harry, who enjoyed his finest hour at Wetherby when winning the John Smith's Hurdle by 20 lengths in October, 2011.
