This race has a difficult look about it to find value with the 2 mullins runners looking very strong at the top of the weights. Ivan could well win this head in chest but he did only run last week and that gives us hope here. Clondaw Warrior has had a few chances to win decent handicap hurdles in the past of a lot lower marks than this but failed. The value here seems to be with Ifanbutwhynot, he was 3rd in this last year of a higher mark and has had a very light season this year since moving stables. He did seem to be on the way back last time out after another break and after last year’s run today will have been the plan. He is a very consistent horse and 25/1 looks EW value here.
1 Point ew 25/1 Generally
Masters Hill has been steadily improving since his 2 very poor runs earlier this season and the form of his last run has worked out well. He should be able to turn the tables on Goodtoknow here and if he can improve his jumping at all he could well be involved here at a huge price.
I like a proven stayer in these races and Millborough is certainly that with a win in the Eider 2 years ago. He improved on this season form last time out and can certainly perform of this mark. 40/1 wth 5 places is very big.
