Ruby Walsh: The value duo who can put it up to Call Me Lord at Ascot…

Ruby reckons Call Me Lord is far from the value-pick in Saturday's Grade One three-miler at Ascot...

I can’t see how Call Me Lord is such a short price. I know he has an official rating of 160 and had a good run in the Imperial Cup recently with top weight, but that was at two miles and this race is over three.

From what I can see, he’s never actually run to 160 and his rating may be a bit inflated – I think he’s very much under-priced. That’s looking at it in cold form – in my opinion he hasn’t achieved anything near the level that Unowhatimeanharry or Sam Spinner have.

Both of them represent a bit of value against Call Me Lord.

Stay Humble was behind Monbeg Worldwide and My Sister Sarah at Fairyhouse in November.

He’s coming down in grade and going back up in trip here, and that will suit.

Gordon Elliott’s Western Honour – who beat Willie Mullins’ Castlebawn West at Clonmel earlier in the month – with Davy Russell on board, will be the hardest horse to beat.
