Katenko: Set to reappear at Haydock

Katenko: Set to reappear at Haydock

Katenko will attempt to get his season back on track in the Peter Marsh Chase at Haydock Park on Saturday.

Trained by Venetia Williams, the eight-year-old was talked of as a lively outsider for the Cheltenham Gold Cup after a string of impressive performances last season but he was sidelined after winning in January and suffered an attack of colic in the summer.

The French bred returned to action in the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury in November and was still travelling well when taking a heavy fall at the 14th and then ran well below par when turned out at Aintree just seven days later.

He is set to carry 11-8 with Vino Griego, an easy winner of the Future Stars Chase at Sandown in December, topping the handicap with 2lbs more.

A total of 10 runners have been declared for the handicap chase over three miles and a furlong and the include Merry King who finished fifth in the Hennessy at Newbury and again in the Welsh National; he is set to wear a visor for the first time.

The Minack is scheduled to have his first start in 700 days while course winners Night Alliance, Sydney Paget and Chance Du Roy are all set to face the starter.

The line-up is completed by Rehearsal Chase winner second Vintage Star, Wychwoods Brook and Valoroso.
