Well if I had bet on horses to fall I would have made more money. Thankfully, as Klassical Dream came in I managed to cover my bets.
Onto day 2:
1:30 Baring Bingham
Champ looks good but no horse outside of a 5 year old or 6 year old has won this in the last 10 years. Looking at the stats this is going to come down to two horses and I am going to choose the one which is closest to the average SP which is BATTLEOVERDOYEN rather than City Island.
1pt Win – BATTLE OVERDOYEN
2:10 The RSA Chase
The stats make this look quite tight but in the end I am going to go for TOPOFTHEGAME over Henderson’s On the Blind Side. Mainly down to the fact that TOPOFTHEGAME looks better over softer ground.
1pt Win – TOPOFTHEGAME
2:50 – Coral Cup
SO many horses, so little stats to separate them, this is going to be more a guess than anything else! FARCLAS, no great form, but none needed, has Elliott as a trainer, last run in Feb and around the right odds.
0.5pt Win – FARCLAS
3:30 – Queen Mother Champion Chase
ALTIOR (Although it has to be said Henderson horses are looking a little shaky this year, it wouldn’t surprise me if he was finally beaten)
