none today. I had a flick through a couple of chases at Exeter and Warwick but couldn’t muster the enthusiasm to dive into anything with my tipping stake. The 4.50 Exeter looks tough. The fav deserves to be so given he is in form, handles the mud and is thoroughly unexposed. On the flip side he is inexperienced over fences and stamina is an unknown- the trip could be the making of him, or he may not see it out. I wouldn’t want to dive in at that price but i’m also wary of taking him on. The rest seem to have as many questions also. Shotgun Paddy may be of some interest given that they remove the headgear and Sheehan takes over- both reason for why he ‘could’ show more life. Were he to repeat runs from early 2017 in much better races than this, then he’d go very close. The same could be said for Kim Bailey’s slow old boat who probably needs the visor to work. He usually just plods on and that may be enough. I didn’t have any overly strong thoughts though so have left it.
Capard King returns again at Warwick, but 6s and not 14s as when last seen. I still don’t know how he didn’t win at Donny. This is a weaker race but given his flaws (doesn’t like winning/can idle/hit a fence) I didn’t want to dive in at 6/1 but hope he goes very close. Maybe worth an interest tickle as I couldn’t have anything else in that at the prices.
