From the members post… my three Becher pokes and a preview video…
#1 Vieux Lion Rouge – 1 point win – 10/1 (gen) (12.5 BFX)
#2 Wandrin Star – 1 point win – 16/1 (gen) (20.00 BFX)
#3 Mysteree – 1 point win – 20/1 (gen) (32.00 BFX)
As covered in the video below…
I will just mention Definitly Red… I was tossing up between him and Vieux Lion R and came down with the latter given his race/course record, and the weight carried. I wasn’t sure the former may be well enough handicapped and most of his best form is in smaller fields where can dictate – but I have a hunch he may go well for a long way, hopefully outstayed by something on the run in! But I probably won’t be able to resist some track side change on him. It won’t be much fun if i’ve picked the wrong one of the two.
This is one of my favourite races of the year, hence the 3 darts, and I have a much better record in it than the National so thought i’d have a good go. Fingers crossed for another Oscar Time or Highland Lodge.
