All for Free can step up in class at Sandown

All for Free has improved out of all recognition in recent runs and can step up in class to land Sandown's competitive 32red Handicap Chase at 2.05.
The 6-y-o landed a hefty gamble at Ascot in December and then followed up readily in a better race at Ludlow, impressing with the way he travelled smoothly through the race and just nudged clear after the last. A rise in the weights means he has to compete in far better class, but this £20,000 contest is full of frontrunners, and the race may well be teed up for him to assert up the hill under regular rider Alain Cawley.
Rileyev has been in excellent heart recently and did well to finish a close second at Ascot last time having barely jumped a fence fluently under the champion A P McCoy. With his yard now in blistering form he must go close, but the three Railway fences at Sandown provide a stern test and he will certainly need to find a better rhythm in his suspect jumping.
Hold Fast was "expected" first time out having been switched to Paul Nicholls, but failed to last home in the straight. He prefers to dominate small fields and that will not be easy here.
King Edmund is up in the weights after a gritty display at Ascot last time. He has a very good record at this venue and it sure to be thereabouts, whilst trailblazer Tanks For That has it all to do under topweight, having suffered an uncharacteristic heavy fall at Cheltenham.
In summary, a red hot handicap sure to be run at a rapid pace, and the prospect of the frontrunners cutting each others throats. This will suit our selection All for Free, who is a thorough stayer and is must bet material at around 7-1 this morning.
