Wednesday’s Leicester racing tips: Simonsig sibling Dusart keeps it in the family for Henderson

It’s an all chase card at Leicester, meaning a feast of timber leapers in the East Midlands. Simonsig’s half-brother makes his reappearance for Nicky Henderson, which can’t be bad.

Out The Glen (13.20 Leicester)

Dusart (13.50 Leicester)

Dreamsundermyfeet (14.20 Leicester)

Kilbrook (14.50 Leicester)

Zambella (15.20 Leicester)

Celma Des Bois (15.50 Leicester)

Here's a rundown of Planet Sport's three top picks from Leicester and a soupcon of detail as to why they make cracking bets.

13.50 Leicester - Dusart

Simonsig has been in the news as Nicky Henderson suggested Constitution Hill or Jonbon may go over further at Cheltenham, like his star grey chaser of old, so this Leicester runner is timely.

A half-brother to the Arkle winner Simonsig, Dusart finished second in the Grade 1 Betway Top Novices' Hurdle on only his second career start.

Obviously bred for better things than a soft ground slog round Leicester, Dusart should take the Pertemps Network Novices' Chase if Henderson is eyeing bigger prizes.

14.20 Leicester - Dreamsundermyfeet

Martin Keighley's seven-year-old has proved super consistent since May 2021, with four wins and not finishing out of the top three since then.

On his penultimate start, the Yeats gelding kept on well to score by one and quarter lengths from Chris Kellet's Begoodtoyourself.

Before that, Dreamsundermyfeet had racked up a Summer hat-trick at Southwell.

Clipped back in trip and on stamina sapping ground, his experience over longer trips will come into play in the Pertemps Network Novices' Handicap Chase.

Each-Way Thief: 15.50 Leicester - Celma De Bois

A second last time out puts Celma Du Bois in the each-way frame at Leicester in a weak Pertemps Network Handicap Chase.

Niall Houilhan retains the ride on the veteran distance winner and takes off a handy three pounds in the mud.
