Townshend is an outrageous price here on the back of a not so good run around a silly track like Galway last time out. He got a bit behind after the last 2 and couldn’t make it up. The form of his Novice Chase win around Roscommon could not have worked out any better and he won that well against a very high class field. He is about 5 times the price he should be here and that means it time to bet. I think he is about a 12/1 shot here so the wallet can be opened at the 50/1 available. We’ll certainly get a run for our money as he is very likely to be in there with a shot coming down to the last 2 here as he is a strong traveller and a good jumper most of the time.
2 Points win 50/1 365/hills/betfair/paddy/boyles
I fancy 2 young horses here with some improvement in them . West Coast Time was a big talking horse a while ago and has been disappointing on the face of it, but it would hardly be a surprise if he suddenly improved of what seems a nice mark here.
In addition Houses of Parliament already has the form in the book to be competitive here of this mark . 33/1 is too big for him .
1 point win West Coast Time 22/1 generally
1 point ew Houses of Parliament 33/1 5 places lads/paddy/Betfair/Boyles
