Thanks for That, is a pure good ground 2 miler and it’s been a while since he’s had that. He was a very good 2nd last year at the festival and didn’t get his conditions there this year. He is sure to be tuned up for this time of the year and has very little racing this year in comparison to the rest. He is 2lbs lower than his run at the festival last year and 20/1 looks a great price.

Paul Nicholls holds the key here with the Fav and an interesting contender in Rebel Du Maquis. He performs best on good ground and I liked the look of his last run at Cheltenham over 2m5,when travelling well until a mistake 3 out in a much better race than this. This might be plan b but he has an excellent jockey on board and as an 8yo can beat some of the older better fancies ones here.
2 Points win 10/1
Sentry Duty is one who has generally been disappointing for a while now. I did like the look of one of his flats run this year, and gut feeling tells me that this race might just suit him. 3 Miles on a flat track of a half decent mark might just give him a chance at a huge price and it’s worth a shot just in case

I’m not sure there is much between most of these near the top of the market, and Vasco Du Ronceray was a very good 5th at the festival when he had a silly amount of ground to make up over the last 2 flights. He has the assistance of Tony McCoy here tomorrow and at the current odds of 8/1 he looks the value of the race. He was ahead of the favourite at Cheltenham and I don’t really see any reason for that to change here.
