Hennessy Gold Cup

With the ground drying out I’m going to go with First Lieutenant as the value of the race. I think he is clearly second favourite here and has had two runs this year, which should see him right for this test. His last run in Down Royal was very good and he wouldn’t need to improve much to be involved here. He is probably a better jumper than the favourite and looks sure to give me a run for my money at 12.0 on Betfair

2 Points win 12.0 Betfair

I went through the rest of the race and came up with two further horses that could well be value at the current prices. Diamond Harry obviously needs to come back to form, but I’m hoping today has been the plan for a long time and 10:03 for the former winner of this race certainly give him a superb chance if that is the case. In Addition Sol looks one that could really be suited by this test and again is possibly well handicapped on potential. I wouldn’t normally be very upbeat about a horse that has left Willie Mullins, but on last year’s form he could well get places here at a decent price

1 Point E/W Diamong Harry 25/1 Bet365 5 places

1 Point EW Sol 28/1 Bet365 5 places
