It was a Successful first day for VHT followers gaining 3 Winners on Day 1, which was no mean feat judged on some of the big prices that went flying in! Tomorrow looks a tough day with some strong favorites but we have had a look and tried to bring you some value in the market.
Here are our Pointers for Day 2:
2.00 – Rose Appeal Supports Alder Hey Top Novices Hurdle – MY TEN OR YOURS 4/11 No bet – Impossible to oppose in our honest opinion and should gain compensation for his 2nd behind Champagne Fever at Cheltenham, we will watch the race and enjoy! WIn
2.30 – John Smith s Mildmay Novices Chase – Sea Of Thunder 11/1 EW – Dynaste disappointed at Cheltenham and although expected to do better here we don’t feel inclined to get stuck in once again and would side for the value in our selection who will enjoy this better ground under Geraghty. PU -1
3.05 – John Smith s Melling Chase – Sprinter Sacre/Cue Card w/o market 13/8 NAP – It is hard not to love everything about Sprinter Sacre and it will be interesting to see him run over this 2m 4f trip. Cue Card was also mightily impressive at Cheltenham and may be worth a punt in the w/o favourite where he can be backed at 13/8 with bet365. Win +2.43
3.40 – John Smith s Topham Chase – Jamsie Hall 16/1 EW/Gullible Gordon 16/1 EW – A wide open race in which we suspect will be one for the bookies, so we would advise small EW stakes on the two selections who we have a small dancy for. 17th/5h+0.5
4.15 – John Smith s Sefton Novices Hurdle – Our Vinnie 10/1 EW. Was travelling nicely last time when brought down and deserves his place in the lineup, has great place claims although At Fishers Cross will be very hard to beat and we wouldn’y be advising big stakes again.NR
4.50 – John Smith s Daily Mirror Punters Club Handicap Hurdle – Meister Eckhart 10/1 EW – Cracking 2nd last time out at Cheltenham, and with a 4lb rise looking fair he should be thereabouts again under Aidan Coleman for Alan King. 3rd +0.75
We wont be having a bet in the Bumper.
Total = +2.68
Good Luck, VHT
