2.40 Way Back Home 10-1
I think this one is over priced in the market. The top 2 in the betting are the obvious ones since they finished 2nd and 3rd in the Triumph Hurdle behind Pentland Hills. The latter went in again at Aintree by winning the Grade 1 Doom Bar Juvenile Hurdle. I can’t separate the 2 and it will depend on how they have recovered from their Cheltenham exertions. Way Back Home finished 3rd at Punchestown in December in a race won by Gardens of Babylon. He has since won his maiden and a Grade 3 at the track. He travels well and can make the running. He is a fluent jumper too and think he will be in the places at least. He comes here as a fresh horse too compared to the 3 market leaders and Paul Townend takes the ride too.
4.20 Snow Falcon 11-8
He hasn’t been seen since November when he won the Grade 2 at Down Royal beating the likes of Shattered Love, Monalee and The Storyteller. He comes here a fresh horse and has outstanding claims. Ordinary World is the danger as he has been beaten in Grade 1 races behind the likes of Altior and Min. He is also receiving 6lb from Snow Falcon. The Storyteller has been disappointing since winning the Grade 1 Champion Novice Chase at Punchestown last year. He was pulled up after blundering in the Ryanair last time and he isn’t reliable with his jumping.
