LiveScore Racing Preview: Cheltenham, November 14, 2021
It is the final day of the November Meeting from Cheltenham and there are four graded races on this brilliant card to end the weekend at Prestbury Park.
The highlight of the afternoon is the Shloer Chase at 2.20pm and we have picked five horses for you to follow.
1.10pm - mallardjewellers.com Novices' Chase (3m½f)
It has been an excellent start to the season for DOES HE KNOW as he comes into this race bidding for a hat-trick of wins.
He prevailed at Chepstow (2m7½f) on his chase debut and then scored over this C&D.
There should be much more to come from Kim Bailey's runner. He clearly enjoys a stamina test and his jumping will get better.
A third straight win looks on the cards for this exciting novice chaser.

1.45pm - Jewson Click And Collect Handicap Chase (3m3½f - Grade 3)
EMPIRE DE MAULDE stepped up from a respectable seasonal reappearance to prevail at Kelso last month over 3m2f.
That step up in trip was appreciated by the horse on what was his second outing since having wind surgery.
James Ewart's gelding has gone up 5lb in the ratings but he could improve again for this extra distance and with this testing up-hill finish.

2.20pm - Shloer Chase (2m - Grade 2)
The first two home from the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, PUT THE KETTLE ON and Nube Negra, meet here for this Grade Two contest.
Henry De Bromhead's chaser can confirm that form with another big success at this course.
With seven wins from 10 starts over fences, the Irish-based mare has an excellent record as a chaser.
She won this race 12 months ago and she can add her name to the honours' board once again in this small but quality field.

2.55pm - Unibet Greatwood Handicap Hurdle (2m½f - Grade 3)
Nicky Henderson is showing a lot of confidence in NO ORDINARY JOE who features in this Grade Three contest after just four starts on the track.
The five-year-old has been successful in three of those outings, with his latest win coming at Worcester (2m4f).
This mark of 133 may be very lenient for the Seven Barrows runner. His trainer has never won this race but maybe this is the year he puts that record straight with this up and coming hurdler.

3.30pm - Sky Bet Supreme Trial Novices' Hurdle (2m½f - Grade 2)
Since he has been over hurdles, I LIKE TO MOVE IT has a 100% record on the track.
He prevailed at Worcester (2m) on his opening appearance over an obstacle.
He then followed that up with an impressive win over this C&D on his step up in class. Nigel Twiston-Davies' gelding stayed on strongly at the finish on that last outing.
He deserves to line up in this Grade Two field and he looks the one they all have to beat.
