Just a very short post today dear readers
I was intending to leave my post until tomorrow when I will have an in depth look at the national but, after casting my eye over the Foxhunters tomorrow, I thought I’d post today because I’m hoping there will be a touch of value available later today.
As things stand, nobody is currently offering prices but this is a race with strong trends and I’ve managed to narrow down the 26 runner field to just a couple who fit the profile.
The strong trends for this race are:
Age: 9 to 11 year olds have won 9 of the last 10 renewals
All of the last 10 winners had won a Class 3 or above
All of the last 10 winners had won at 2m4f or further
All of the last 10 winners had won at Newbury, Haydock, Fontwell or Sedgefield
With the additional application of a couple of slightly less strong trends (but decent ones nonetheless), I have whittled this down to SILVER ADONIS and SHERIFF HUTTON. Forecast prices on the Sporting Life website are 12/1 and 20/1 respectively. If I can get anywhere near those kind of prices about them this evening or tomorrow morning, I will have decent each way bets on both with slight preference for Silver Adonis who looked in very good order when winning last time out at Fakenham.
Gwanako is clearly a danger to the selections and with Paul Nicholl’s current form it would be no surprise to see him win. However, he’s likely to be a very warm order for this and almost certainly will be over bet.
Silver Adonis each way at 9/1 or better
Sherriff Hutton each way at 14/1 or better
I’ll be back tomorrow with a look at the Grand National
