The one match bet I am keen on this afternoon is buying Forpadydeplasterer against Big Zeb at ¾ length in the Champion Chase. I fancy last year’s Arkle winner to emerge on top even if Big Zeb stays on his feet, which is a big if!
Of the others on offer, Long Run is expected to finish around a length in front of Punchestowns which looks a tempting buy – although I am a little worried about his jumping. The only other match that catches the eye is selling Reve de Sivola at 1 length against Irish raider Summit Meeting. I’m not sure the ground will be soft enough to see him at his best.
