RACE two on day four is the County Hurdle which is always a difficult one to work out as it’s a big field handicap and you probably want a lightly raced horse.
North Hill Harvey – Dan Skelton 7-1 10bet
Good form but I would worry about the lack of a run. His win at Cheltenham in November is working out really well and the Cheltenham form is a plus, the lack of a run however could just be connections knowing what they have and just keeping his handicap mark down.
Peace and Co – Nicky Henderson 10-1 10bet
Touted as a Champion Hurdle winner after his win in the 2015 Triumph Hurdle, his form dipped after that win and on his last run he was pulled up in last year's Champion Hurdle. Clearly out of his depth he hasn’t been seen since, he has the Cheltenham form but not for me.
Tombstone – Gordon Elliott 7-1 10bet
If running this horse must on form have a serious chance. Fourth in last year's Supreme Novices Hurdle beat by Altior, Min and Buveur D’air is good form on its own but on his last run beating Jezki by four lengths is more than enough to win a competitive County Hurdle.
Golden Spear – AJ Martin 10-1 10bet
When you look at the form of this horse to that of Tombstone there is no comparison and 10/1 is really poor value, his last run at Leopardstown behind Ice Cold Soul and Tudor City is ok but it’s not standout form and others at better prices have better chances
Ballyandy – Nigel Twistob-Davies 10-1 10bet
His two seconds to Moon Racer put him right up there if he runs here. That’s pretty decent form and even his win last time at Newbury is right up there, it was pretty impressive against some good horses.
Movewiththetimes – Paul Nicholls 10-1 10bet
Another with a good chance, Barry Geraghty says we haven’t seen the best of him yet and his close second to Ballyandy was good form and puts him right up there.
