It was a another winning day on Saturday with Epatante fighting back in the run in to end the race in a dead heat. Definitely wasn’t a great run from her standards but she’s just back from a lay off and surgery. You’ll know more next time out.
The downside to the result is the dead heat rules for paying out on the selection as you don’t receive the full payout but profit is profit and it’s better than a kick in the teeth!
Most bookmakers stick by the dead heat payout rules however I know there is the odd one that will pay out the full sum. Regardless it’s a winning day and that’s all that matters.
Again, I’ve just one selection for tomorrow that I thought looked slightly over priced.
Gordon Elliot has pretty much dominated this race in recent times having trained 6 of the previous 9 winners. However I don’t fancy the chances that much of his runners tomorrow and have decided to look elsewhere.
The one that I fancied the look of and thought was rather over priced was the Emmet Mullins' runner Cape Gentleman. He was sent off a warm favourite last time out at Punchestown where he was surprisingly turned over. I’m drawing a line through that run as previous to that he showed signs of potentially being a nice chaser.
The most eye catching run in regards to his chase career was a thumping 12/15 length victory over Run Wild Fred who we know recently won the Troytown so the form of some of his runs are working out pretty nicely.
He steps back up in trip on Sunday and at 13/2 there’s every chance he’ll out run those odds if showing up. 13/2 for me is an each way bet so if worse comes to worse and he places you’ll at the least receive your stake back and receiving a small return.
