“Oh what a history
We’ve had with you
Your wins divine
That special moment
Goes on forever
Can you leave the other runners behind?
Oh Salsify! Salsify me! Salsify! Salsify me!”
Main Selection: Salsify
It’s difficult to remain objective in this one having backed Salsify to win this race not once but twice in both 2012 and 2013. He missed out last year but made a belated return to the track last month and looks like he has a chance again.
Each way selection: Current Event
This one has some solid form from back in his handicapping days and recently has won several point to point races before winning a hunter chase on his last outing. Has clearly been aimed at this race and looks like he has a touch of class and will throw down a challenge.
Salsify – 3 points each way at 9-1 with Totesport
Current Event – 2 point each way at 8-1 with Totesport
