Previously Advised Ante-Post Running Today
Bobs Worth looked a world beater last year but didn’t run up to expectations this year, more than likely the ground played a part. I just don’t fancy anything else in the race at the moment and if he can recover his best form (which he will be given a great chance to do with very little runs this year), i think he will win. Taking that into consideration, the current best price of 11/1 looks huge and I’d love to be holding that docket when he lines up in March.
2 Points win 11/1 Various
I think he has a great chance today and i dont mind the rain at all for him he won this in soft ground 2 years ago and he struggles wot keep up on real good ground. Im going to add another point at a silly price of 18/1
1 Point win 18/1 Sporting/888/VCBET
Wicklow Brave was backed heavily last time out and never got a run at all in the Betfair hurdle having missed the start. I think he is well ahead of the handicapper. He ran an eye-catching race last year in the Supreme and has been poor enough this year, but could well come alive again back here in similar conditions. He will have a light weight and once he gets in hell be involved in the finish. I’m going to gamble on standard anti-post, as I cant resist the 33/1 Available.
1 Point win 33/1 Various
I’m adding another 1pt EW on Wicklow Brave for the County as I was waiting for 33/1 NRNB and that is available with Betfred and totesport

4:00 Hunter Chase
I was all over Paint the Clouds in this but with the rain now that may not suit him. I think the 10/1 about Salsify looks huge and cant be ignored. He was only o first time out this year but thats the same every year for him. He could be a class ahead of these still and has won one of these on Soft Already. I think he is a 5/1 shot to 10s is massive.
2 Points win 10/1 Generally
I liked Peace and Co from the start in this and at the current 4/1 and the rain which can only help his cause. Ill have to have a bet.
2 Points win 4/1 William Hill
5:15 Grand Annual
I’m running out of time before having to walk down in the rain. Next Sensation stands out here from last years race at a very big looking 16/1. My feeling is he can be conserved a bit here and if he can repeat last year run he will be very close.
1 Point EW 16/1
