Sandown 13.50 – Moonlighter

I’m going for Moonlighter. He was fifth in this race last year and was dropped 3lbs. He then came back in February and beat Dolos at Sandown to go back to a rating of 147. He finished fifth behind Editeur Du Gite on his last run in December but prior to that he had two disappointing runs at Cheltenham and Exeter. Nick Williams will have improved him since December and he’s off a mark of 141 on a course he likes. He’ll do me!

Wincanton 14.05 – Grey Diamond

I’m siding with Grey Diamond for Jack Tudor and Sam Thomas. Jack takes 3lbs off his back to bring him back from the monster weight of 12-2 to 11-13. He’s down in grade and that’ll suit him. Sam Thomas trained the Welsh National winner over Christmas and I’m hoping Grey Diamond will be another winner for him.

Sandown 14.25 – Constitution Hill

Constitution Hill is unopposable in my book. I wouldn’t oppose him but would I back him at his odds?  Probably not. I loved what he did at Sandown the last time when he beat Might I, who I thought wasn’t a bad horse after watching him win at Newton Abbott. I loved everything Constitution Hill did – the way he picked up, the way he jumped, the way he hit the line.

Of the others, Datsalrightgino battled really well under Gavin Sheehan to beat Jpr One at Cheltenham last time and on the face of it, Mr Glass’ form isn’t strong enough. I’m not sure Datsalrightgino will follow Constitution Hill home though, maybe Mr Glass will. Paul Nicholls had plenty of options for him and he’s come here to run him in a Grade 1 and he generally doesn’t do that for a day out.

Wincanton 14.40 – Getalead (Each Way)

I’m going for Getalead as an each-way punt. He won over 2m 5f at Wincanton in October and followed that with wins at Warwick and Ascot. He was then disappointing at Taunton in December and didn’t get going. He could bounce back in this one and he’s a great each-way price.

Sandown-Park

Sandown 15.00 – Gwencily Berbas

I fancy Gwencily Berbas, who won well on his last start at Exeter in December. He’s gone up 8lbs for that victory, but getting his head back in front could have done him the world of good.

    Wincanton 15.15 – Stolen Silver

    Stolen Silver for Jack Tudor and Sam Thomas is the obvious one. He ran a cracking race behind Editeur Du Gite at Cheltenham in November. He was then fourth behind Edwardstone in the Henry VIII at Sandown. He’s the best horse with the best form.

    Sandown 15.35 – Natural History

    I can see why Hermes Boy is heading the market, but I’m siding with Natural History. He was far too keen on his last start at Doncaster in December but Gary and Jamie Moore have a great record at Sandown. He’s a good each-way shout.

    Ruby Walsh’s best bets:

    Sandown 13.50 – Moonlighter
    Wincanton 14.05 – Grey Diamond
    Sandown 14.25 – Constitution Hill
    Wincanton 14.40 – Getalead (Each Way)
    Sandown 15.00 – Gwencily Berbas
    Wincanton 15.15 – Stolen Silver
    Sandown 15.35 – Natural History
