1.30 2m 4f Class 1 JLT Novices Chase –
A very popular ante post pick for us at carrying prices but at 9/4 we have no reason to vacate and still looks a fair bit of value. Plenty of bookmaker offers on this runner so shop carefully.
2.05 3m 0f Class 1 Pertemps Network Final (Listed Handicap Hurdle) –
2.40 2m 5f Class 1 Ryanair Chase (Registered As The Festival Trophy Chase) –
MA FILLEULE 6/1 EW.
Very unlucky not to win at last year's festival and made steady progress since. Fitness should be cherry ripe here and looks one that is good value for the places.
3.20 3m 0f Class 1 Ladbrokes World Hurdle (Grade 1) –
No Bet.A tough race and one we cannot decide on a decent bet in.
4.00 2m 5f Class 1 Brown Advisory and Merriebelle Stable Plate (Grade 3 Handicap Chase) –
BUYWISE 10/1 EW.
Still relatively unexposed over fences and won at this course last year before making decent progress. Has more to give and looks a good price here.
4.40 3m 2f Class 2 Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup Handicap Chase (Amateur Riders) –
THE OULD LAD 16/1 EW.
A tough race and one that 5 places should be taken as offered by bet365/Paddy Power/Coral. Selection won twice at the tunr of the year but hasn't quite reached the same height since but stepped back up in trip looks one to get involved at the end here. Good value pick.
