Ryanair Chase 2:50

Cue Card will have more or less his ideal conditions here and I think Un Des Seaux will struggle to stay on this ground. 6/1 is what looks a 2 horse race to me is massive value. If he can run to the same standard as his last race he wins.

3 Points win 6/1 365 /10bet 11/2 elsewhere


Traffic Fuide has been on my mind for this for ages and even though id prefer better ground, I think he has fair bit in hand from his mark. He caught my eye last time out in the Cue Card race which was the best chase this year . 28/1 is great value

I’m also going to go with Splash of Ginge who won for us at a huge price in basically the same race earlier this year on the same ground and is only 3lbs higher with bottom weight.

The New One has great form on soft ground and I think he will not know he has been in a race until near the end as they will be going slow enough here. He stays superbly in this ground and just isn’t 16/1 shot.

2 Points win 16/1 Generally


The Young Master has been on my mind for months for this and he is on a great mark . Although soft ground probably isn’t ideal he will go on it and it should slow the race down which will help him. I think he will stay on past most of these at the end, He caught the eye behind Fountains Windfall at Ascot jumping left all the time and if he can reproduce that run of this mark going lefthanded  he will be right in the firing line at the finish.

Whataknight on the face of it runs better on good ground, but he has one piece of form on soft that impresses me when I watch the replay. He was a hardworking 2nd at Doncaster after fighting of a number of other horses. That was off 6 lbs higher and of this mark and after a break I wouldn’t be surprised if he ran well here at a huge price.
