3:45 Cheltenham

Maybe I’m imagining it but as far as I can see I’m narrowing this down to 2 here in last year’s winner Ashkazar who is only 1 lb higher than last year after basically doing nothing this year , and Galaxy Rock who I strongly fancied at the festival. Both will probably appreciate the decent ground and I don’t fancy anything ahead of them in the market. Ashkazar I’m pretty sure will be ready to run a big race here and Galaxy Rock has been waiting for a decent opportunity on good ground. He is only 1 lb higher than his very good 2nd here at the October meeting in a stronger race than this and repeating that could well be enough here.

1 Point win Galaxy Rock 8/1 Various

1 Point win Ashkazar 10/1 Ladbrokes
