ALWAYS a terrific race but finding winners isn’t easy. Similar to the Coral Cup yesterday in that respect although this is over a further distance.
Not one to be throwing the kitchen sink at but let’s see if we can find some each-way value.
2.05 – Pertemps Handicap Hurdle
– 3 miles
– Run over hurdles
– Horses run in qualifiers throughout the season culminating in this final
– Fiercely competitive
Main Selection: Call The Cops
The horse showed that he was in tremendous form when he bolted up recently at Doncaster. There is lot to be said for a horse that has had a recent positive run and Call The Cops looked like he had plenty left in reserve. Nicky Henderson hasn’t had a great week so far but this might be one that can make an impression.
Each way selection: Closing Ceremony
Another improver who might find himself ahead of the handicapper given his most recent win and his young age. Open to improvement which is always important and at this sort of price it would be rude not to.
Call The Cops – 2 points each way at 9-1 with Totesport
Closing Ceremony – 1 point each way at 25-1 with Totesport
