2024 Maghull Novices Chase Preview

Found A Fifty has top billing in the Maghull Novices Chase after losing out to Gaelic Warrior in the Arkle Challenge Trophy at Cheltenham last month, trading at close to Evens.

Hercule De Seuil is one of two horses priced with a chance of beating the favourite, thanks to a pair of Grade 3 wins in Ireland earlier this season.

Meanwhile Etalon is trading at the same price, is unbeaten over fences, but is yet to compete at the highest level.
