I’ve been wondering when Guitar Pete will win a decent chase of this mark and I’m hopeful that today is the day at a decent price. He is in here of a really low mark of 132 and for a Grade 1 winning 4yo hurdler that as far as I can see is a decent jumper of a fence he is certainly well in of that mark. He is a biggish price because he failed last time out in a weaker race but on a second look he was traveling strongly and made 2 bad jumps close to home which put paid to his chances. That race was also over too far and I think the big drop in trip here will be right up his street. He was just beaten by Shadow Catcher in a decent novice chase but that one then finished a very good 3rd in the Down Royal Grade 2. He did win a Grade 1 & Grade 2 Hurdle on this type of ground, beating both Tiger Roll and Clarcam in the process. He is here with bottom weight and Nina booked, my guess is he will be prominent and may be hard to pass with that light weight. 10/1 looks decent value.
2 Points win 10/1 Generally.
This horse ran a very decent race, travelling the best until just before the last and tired in the heavy ground. Id be very confident that well get a win out of him in a very good 2 mile race, possibly at cheltenham or more likely Aintree.
How did the 2 pointer get on?
Ran well. Id be very confident of a big result from him in the Spring, so hopefully we get a decent price.
