I’m sure people will think Ive lost the plot here but i just cant rule out L’ami Serge at a huge price. He is mad and a poor jumper at times but no matter what way i look at it he is going to be placed here. His festival form is better than most of these, and i think what he actually needs is this fast 2 mile race. 33/1 with 6 places is a huge price
2 Points EW 33/1 6 places Paddy/Sky 5 places elsewhere
I think there is a fairly strong chance that Cue Card is a fair way clear of these. Im more or less ruling out Native River as i don’t really like his form at all. That makes the 5/1 about Cue Card seems too big and worthy of a decent bet. I think he will love this test on decent ground. In addition i think Irish Cavalier is about a 10/1 shot to place making his 100/1 4 places price too big. He certainly loves good ground and was 5th last year.

Mendip Express is a mad price here at 66/1. He had some of the best form last year in hunters and has s superb chance of being involved here. I also think Black Thunder is very overpriced because of a poor run last time. We can be sure today is the day for him.

Mr Fiftyone has been an expensive horse to follow for a long time but he will like the ground here and i like the fact that he has been sent here after a 5 month break by a trainer who just doesn’t waste travel. 33/1 is worth the risk
1 Point EW 33/1 Generally
