Bullish Harry Fry Expects Super Novice Acting Lass To Remain Unbeaten Over Fences

Harry Fry claims he is ‘full of confidence’ as talented novice Acting Lass aims to make it four from four over fences at Kempton.

The seven-year-old enjoyed wins at Leicester and Market Rasen, before seeing off a field of experienced chasers at Ascot last time.

He has been handed a 6lb rise in the weights following his two-and-a-quarter length victory at the Berkshire track, but expectations are very high for him once again.

“Acting Lass has gone from strength to strength this season,” Fry told his Betway blog.

“Noel (Fehily) was absolutely delighted when he sat on him in the schooling ring on Tuesday.

“We had the option of running in the Pendil over two-and-a-half, but with conditions improving we felt that now’s the time to step him up to three miles.

“We’ve always thought that he’d make a three-mile chaser so this looks the ideal time to step him up.

“It’s a very valuable prize and, although it’s highly competitive, we go there full of confidence.”

Fergal O’Brien’s consistent Master Dee looks his biggest danger this afternoon. The nine-year-old has placed on all three outings so far this season and should enjoy the return to a three mile trip.

Nigel Twiston-Davies saddles two in the Grade Three contest. Ballykan was a runner-up at this venue on his last start, whilst Tintern Theatre hopes to return to his best after falling at Haydock last time.

Go Conquer landed Ascot’s Sodexo Gold Cup in impressive style on his penultimate start, but was disappointing when unseating his rider when last seen in December.

Josses Hill is being dropped in grade after failing to fire in three graded contests this season,

Grand National hope As De Mee and recent listed runner-up Art Mauresque lines up for Paul Nicholls, alongside Grade One-winning Theatre Guide and bottom weight Theatre Territory.

The likes of Loose Chips, Label Des Obeaux, Vibrato Valtat, Monbeg Charmer and Relentless Dreamer also feature.

TIP: I have always rated Acting Lass and he has turned into a bit of a profit machine for me! Connections have always rated this horse really highly and he still looks like he could be on a workable mark. Conditions will suit and I really fancy his chances here. Ballykan and Theatre Territory could be ones to watch for the each-way players.
