JohnB’s Sunday tips
Briar Hill 3-1 William Hill
Benefit In Kind & Briar Hill 16.33-1 William Hill
Benefit In Kind (NAP)
JohnB says: “I tipped this horse as my NB two runs ago at Musselburgh and he won by 20 lengths at 5-1. Then last time out at Catterick I tipped him again and he should have won but fell at the third last.
“Down in class on Sunday in what looks a weak race he should be able to take care of these rivals if jumping round this time. Lightly raced with only the four runs over fences so still has improvement in him.”
Briar Hill (NB)
JohnB says: “I also tipped this horse last time out and it was the same day the nap ran. I have always thought highly of this horse but so far after two runs this season he hasn’t quite managed to recover from his fall at Cheltenham last year when breaking a cheekbone.
“Last time out Briar Hill was fourth, beaten 13 lengths by Dedigout and Zaidpour was eight lengths ahead of Briar Hill but Ruby Walsh sticks with Briar Hill which says he is expecting an improved run.
“There is also word coming from the Mullins yard that Briar Hill has been impressive at home and looking better than he has for a while. The Mullins team want to run him in the World Hurdle so they are still confident Briar Hill still has what it takes.
“Ruby Walsh is also quietly confident about Briar Hill’s chances on Sunday. Dedigout beat Briar Hill last time in what was a much improved effort but there is no guarantee he will find that form again so I am confident Briar Hill will have enough improvement to win this.”
