Will Carver

Will Carver blew his rivals away by 12 lengths to break his maiden under Rules last time at Kempton (2m5f). This is going to be a much tougher assignment for Nicky Henderson's novice as Gordon's Jet and Now Where Or When represent strong opposition. The tongue-tie will be fitted for the first time on Will Carver and if that helps the horse to improve further, he could take some beating. It is a long trip up to Perth for the Lambourn team so they must feel their horse has an excellent chance of ensuring it is worth the journey.

Beyond The Clouds

With four wins from seven starts, Beyond The Clouds had an excellent record over hurdles. He has now made a great start to his chase career, scoring on his first outing over fences at Sedgefield last month. This horse jumped well in that six-length success so he could end up being an even better chaser. Charlie Longsdon's runner does need to concede weight to the field but this looks to be the next step in the horse's career in what may be an exciting future.


The Sam Morshead Perth Gold Cup is the feature race at the Scottish course and there are some old favourites in this contest, including Tommy Rapper and Valtor. Potterman makes his first start since he scored at Sandown in their big race on their final meeting in April. He has been assigned 11st 12lb here so he is going to need to be at his very best to prevail. This horse may not have stopped improving though, so take him to make a winning start to his new campaign.


Wakool prevailed over this C&D last month and that success came on the back of good performances at Musselburgh and Kelso respectively. It was a good win as he was bumped around a lot in the closing stages of that race but it was not enough to prevent him from coming out on top. Nicky Alexander's hurdler is only five years old so he is the youngest horse in this field. There may be much more to come from him so don't be concerned by his 5lb rise in the weights.

About Perth Racecourse

Perth is the northernmost racecourse in Scotland. It is a National Hunt racecourse thats hosts 16 days of racing between April and September.

The highlight of the Perth calendar occurs in August at the Summer Carnival where the £30,000 Stone of Destiny Handicap takes place. This is when Perth sees their largest audience and they really do put on a show. There are summer activities, live music and it is very difficult to see an empty seat during the event.
