Brockwell is favourite here in my book, and I’m surprised to see him available here at 16 on Betfair. He is one of the least exposed in the field and ran a superb race in the Northumberland Plate at Newcastle last time, when finishing really well from what looked an impossible position. On the evidence of that the step up in trip will be no problem to him, and he may well be one that it still very much on the upgrade.

Muirheads 4th in the Bet365 Gold cup on his last run over fences is about as good form as there is in this race, and I think he has been given a chance here with his mark of 135. He was a high class Hurdler and has finished a decent 6th in this race before. This year he has run well In all his chases and I think this is his best kind of trip. 20/1 with 5 places on Bet365 looks great value. He should go on whatever the ground brings up.
1 Point EW 20/1 Bet365 5 places
I’m going to go with a couple of the older brigade here. Caim Hill, could well be in better form tham his price of 20/1 suggests given his very good flat run only 1 month ago beating Shop Dl and Drive Time, in what looked a decent race. He looks to has a decent chance of working of the mark he has here and well worth a small bet at those odds. In Addition Eagles Pass hasn’t done a lot lately but has been shooting down the weights and has run well at Galway before. I wouldn’t be much of a surprise to see him improve here tomorrow and given that 33/1 looks value.
1 Point win Caim Hill 20/1
1 Point win Eagles Pass 33/1
Johannes has a great record around this course, albeit over a shorter trip. He has a very decent claimer on today that he has had success with before, and I though he looked improved last time out finishing well over 6 furlong’s despite being on the wrong part of the track. He is well weighted on his best form and looks a bit of value at 20/1 EW. He did overcome todays kind of draw last time he won here so hopefully he can do the same today
1 Point EW 20/1
