15.45 This looks very competitive. Saint Are will likely go off favourite here after his Becher chase run. I cannot quite understand why he is favourite really, he has not done much really. Everything really is hinged on a repeat bid to retain this race he won last year.
That moves us onto the next in the betting Ericht, a few days after Saint Are won this race, Ericht won a race @ Kempton. In my eyes the form does not amount to much, it is though winning form and thus must be respected.
Seventh Sky has some good form in the book this is a horse to beat here if he has a going day.He will handle this ground better than most here, if this runs to his ability here he will go extremely well.
This is a risky proposition with his profile, but he has the figures to run a good race.
Court By Surprise was actually my pick for this race until I spotted he is 0-11 on Good ground.This horse has one piece of form from November 2016. The horse hit 1.07 in running @ Sandown beating Saint Are in the process 4 and a half lengths.
