Matt Chapman tips 5-1 shot who can strike at Ascot and goes through best bets for Saturday's ITV racing coverage

IT'S THE first big Grade 1 of the Jumps season and what a weekend we have in store.

The Betfair Chase is a cracker even if numbers are down, but I'm heading to Ascot for my weekend NAP.

And I'm siding with the red-hot Paul Nicholls for my fancy.

He's started the season like a house on fire and he's showing no signs of slowing down!

Black Corton may well be the outsider of the field at Ascot in the Grade 2 Pharma Chase.

But if Bryony Frost bangs him out in a clear lead I think he could be hard to catch!
