Aintree 7:05

Sea Lord looks to have found a very decent opportunity here. He climbed the ladder very fast 2 years ago winning a series of summer good ground handicaps. His run this year in the Scottish County hurdle reads well enough as well as he looks to have been up against a couple of well handicapped horses there. He’s had a break and should be fitter after his last run about 3 weeks ago. The flat track 2m4f here should be right up his street, and 12/1 looks value. That said I think I will avoid the knockout handicap snip in waiting here Virgilio. On his day Sea Lord wouldn’t have anything to fear from the rest of there and 9/1 without the FAV here looks the bet to make.
