Off the cliff I go for 1 last time.
I’m afraid i just cant resist a bet on Barizan here. He looked well on his last 2 flat runs but was particularity well in himself last time out and ran well when ridden way to far off the pace. He isn’t going to get too many more chances of a 2mile Hurdle on Good Ground at his age so i have to assume he is ready to go today. Richard Johnson is a great booking for him as it looks to me like he needs a bit of stoking up . 8/1 is a lot bigger than i expected in this race. There is a small negative, i would be loosing my mind in a normal race of this type for him but there are unfortunately some possible improvers here. Particularly the favorite whose form has worked out really well. Still 8/1 is certainly value. Lets hope we see him prominent from the beginning and never see another horse
2 Points win 8/1 Generally
