I had hoped today to give you my detailed analysis and reasons for backing Summery Justice for the Welsh National at Chepstow tomorrow. I had a very handsome antepost ticket at 25/1 on this horse and now my entire strategy has been thrown into disarray by his withdrawal due to injury this morning!
I personally felt this one should be no bigger than 8/1 and that he represented a healthy dose of value at the 20/1 available just yesterday.
So, I won’t bother with my carefully reasoned analysis. I will just give you my 3 against the field – I have small antepost wagers on all of these – and though I think most of the value has now gone – here they are for what it’s worth.
Synchronised – The sustained gamble on this one has made him a strong favourite and he has connections to be feared. I managed to get a bit of the 10/1 available in early December but I certainly won’t be topping up at 4/1. The most likely winner but no value at that price.
Ballyfitz – Some interesting money for this old boy this afternoon and I have had a small each way saver at 20/1. 11 year olds don’t have a great record in this race but he has an each way chance. I think he could be shorter than 20/1 come tomorrow afternoon.
Silver by Nature – Probably has a bit too much weight to lug around here but I wouldn’t write him off entirely.
There you have it. I haven’t got too heavily involved in this with the withdrawal of Summery Justice and I wouldn’t advise you to either.
