This one is simple. Carefully Selected (7/4).
I tipped him four months ago at 25/1 and I’m not going to change my mind now.
He’s a very good horse, he’s got loads of gears and stays forever. He’ll win.
If Battleoverdoyen and Copperhead are put in other races, Carefully Selected (7/4) basically just needs to get around.
He’s a Grade One horse against what is a pretty weak field.
Carefully Selected is the favourite, but is there value in it? He could well be the banker of the whole week.
But I like a bit of value, and at 10/1 I like Newtide. He’s bred to stay further than this and is an exemplary jumper. I think he’s good value each/way at that price.
Carefully Selected (7/4) will win.
I think he’ll go off short, but if’s hard to see beyond Carefully Selected (7/4).
