4:20 Punchestown

One look at the form of The Romford Pele is all it takes here to see that 16/1 is a silly price in this handicap of the mark he runs of tomorrow. His form over this trip on good ground reads well to say the least; he has been competing at the highest level in novice chases and hasn’t been at all disgraced with his runs behind the likes of Balder Success and Tarquin de Seuil. 128 looks hugely fair and it warrants a decent bet as it looks tough to knock him out of the places here

I’m also going with a saver bet on Shamiran who to my eye jumps particularly well and should be better over fences than he was over hurdles which will give him a decent chance here even 2lbs out of the handicap. It’s possible he would prefer softer ground but he has a very good flat run on good ground in the past and he should be there or thereabouts at a very big looking 29 on Betfair
