Hawk High is one of my plot horses for this festival. I had though he was going in the County, but he appears here at a decent price. He has a very good record fresh and i think he certainly has a decent chance here tomorrow. I’m putting it up early as i’m sure it will be backed. His run in the County last year was eye-catching and 33/1 6 places is great value.

This race has 3 of my Pre-Festival handicap horse along with Hawk High, I was confident about a good run this festival from Old Guard and Hargam. Old Guard is worth a bet here at 25/1 as i think he has a touch of class along with very good course form. He was a big eye-catcher in his last 2 runs and i fully expect him to be involved at the finish here.

Colour Squadron was backed as if defeat was out of the question last time out at Punchestown and he really looked like he enjoyed the course but got bogged down in heavy ground near the finish after traveling well. I think the much better ground will suit him a lot better here. The longer trip is definitely a concern but his price of 28/1 is easily value in this race.
