Coral Cup 4:00
Orsippus has a great record of running well in these big field handicaps and has in fact finished 3rd in this race 2 years ago off 2 lbs higher. He had a break lately and came back with a decent run behind Pedlers Cross. He is 50/1 with Coral which looks great value given his consistancy and the 5 places offered. He would probably be shorter if the ground was a bit better but its not a total bog.
1 Point EW 50/1 Coral 5 places
I’m going with 2 more big prices in the Coral Cup. Crack Away Jack looks to be getting back into form and looks to have been given a half decent chance by the handicapper despite have near top weight. He could well improce considerable on the decent ground today and may well be very difficult to knock out of the places at a decent looking 33/1. The other I’m going for is Big Easy at a very big looking 50/1. He has some decent course form hasn’t had a hard season. Last time out here he looked to be travelling well until a poor jump 3 out. He was poor last time on heavy ground and that is the reason for his big price. He looks to have a bit of potential and a nice weight.
½ Point EW Crack Away Jack Various 33/1 5 places
½ Point EW Big Easy 50/1 EW Coral 5 places
4:40 Fred Winter
Ruacana looks to have been underestimated here. He has the best form in the race with his very decent looking 3rd behind Our Conor in Leopardstown and is also a Grade 1 winner in the UK. His mark for this race doesn’t appear to be too bad and he is a very decent price as he appears to be the stable second string here. I doubt there is much between him and Bordini here and the additional 3lbs that he will get from his claimer jockey won’t go astray. Im surprised he is 20/1 and that’s easily worth an EW Bet
1 Point EW 20/1 Various
I also have a 2 Point Ante post bet on Boston Bob at 7/1 in the RSA , which looks a decent bet now that Dynaste isn’t running.
