Any second now actually looks value for once in this race . He is always over bet but he is in form this year and won’t be far away here . He looks the best horse in this race and goes off about 9/2
2 points win 8/1
Allertrix has much better form over hurdles than a mark of 130 indicates . She was multiple graded race place efforts last year and if she acts on the ground here (she wouldn’t be here if not) , she looks to have a great chance

If Joseph can sort out this 4 yo’s head as well as he has others that came from France he may well look great value at 40/1 . I’m not sure it’s ever clear with these young horses which is best . Eye catching run last time

If Elixir Dainay makes even average improvement from his very good debut behind the fav here, he could well get involved here . He’s not here for no reason , and is too big a price .

Oscar Knight was 2nd in that last year in a tougher race . With paddy and vc still going 5 places with only 12 runners 16/1 is a great price .

The Fav will be hard to beat but I think Hardline is underestimated here at 6/1 . His beating of Us and Them and Getabird is top class form and he looks a 3/1 shot to me . 6/1 or 11/2 is certainly too big
2 points win 6/1 betfair
I just can’t resist a bet on Valseur Lido here at 40/1. He’s good around here and travelled well last time out until he got tired . This trip and ground might get him close if his jumping is as good .
