It wasn’t a great Boxing Day in regards to winning selections. Not So Sleepy looked quite awkward and didn’t look to settle that great, push came to shove too soon and he drifted away quite quickly. That being said, Epatante was on her A game and when she is it’s normally curtains for anything in behind.

Frodon ran his normal race and when I seen the likes of Chantry house and Minello Indo struggling along with a few others I thought he was maybe in with a shout but the group started to close and as he faded it was always going to be set up for something travelling well in behind.

I’ve three selections for Monday. Two of them are big each way selections from the Welsh Grand National and the other also comes from the Chepstow meeting.

1:05 Chepstow

One stat that caught my eye on this particular race was that Venetia Williams has actually won 6 out of the previous 9 runnings of this race. Her yard is in pretty good nick as it normally is this time of year and I think she has a decent shout again with Pink Legend.

I’m happy enough to draw a line through her previous run at Aintree in which she was quite badly hampered at the start of the race which then resulted in her being pulled up. Prior to the Aintree run she has form figures of 1-1-2-2.

She will need to be at the absolute top of her game and probably does need a career best to land this however I think she can go close at a nice price if arriving here tomorrow at the top of her game.

2:50 Chepstow

For the Welsh Grand National it’s a lottery and chances can be made for nearly every runner but I’m opting for a couple of each way selections at bigger odds that I think could out run their big odds.

The first selection is one I’ve backed previously on here and that’s the old boy Potters Corner. He’s been absolutely brilliantly as of late most recently where he was nabbed on the line. He’s stays brilliantly and I think he could go close again given the last few races haven’t emptied the tank.

My last selection is Eva’s Oskar at 25s for Tim Vaughan and AJ.

He ran a blinder last time out at Cheltenham where she finished 2nd behind Corach Rambler who I’m near certain Rizzel tipped up to win. Apologies Rizzel if I’m wrong on that one! Regards Corach Rambler was a pretty smart improver that day so I think that piece of form stands my selection in good heart.

Eva’s Oskar runs normally over 3m so is taking a significant step up in trip tomorrow for this tomorrow however I can see why connections feel he might be suited by this step up in trip.
