Quentin Collonges looks to have been given a decent chance by the handicapper here. He was poor in his last run, but not so bad first time out this year over this course. He has 2 previous wins here and will like the good ground tomorrow. If his jumping can improve he will be in with a great chance here on Minimum weight. He has been better after a small break before, and this is only this 3rd run this year. 12/1 looks a nice bit of value and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him go of at 7/1or less.
2 Points win 12/1 various
Cockney Trucker also looks to have been given a decent chance by the handicapper here. He has been a very consistent hurdler until this year, but back here on decent ground of what looks a great mark, with Tony McCoy up the 20/1 with Paddy Power surly won’t last long. If he is to get into any Handicap at the festival he will need to get a win here.
1 Point EW 20/1 Paddy Power
Idarah is a purely gut feeling selection. He has liked decent ground in the past and this veteran’s race which hopefully will be run at a slower pace could well suit him in this step up in trip. He is just about down to his last winning mark from earlier this year, and looks worth a min bet at a very decent price.
½ Point win 20/1 Various
