Week 14

Week 14

21/06- The more I look at the Ryanair the current market seems to have no clue, Allaho may well end up back here, but as Willie Mullins will be desperate to win a Champion Chase and he ran a decent second to Chacun over the trip at Punchestown they may end up not going here with him. Shishkin and Energumene almost definitely will go there. Likewise with Greaneteen. I’m not keen on Altior another year older, we’ve already backed Fakir Doudaries, so I’m going to side with another. Fusil Raffles, who was second in the Marsh at this years festival, beaten by stablemate Chantry House who will likely be stepped up and possibly a gold cup horse? He currently sits at 40/1 and depending on which horses turn up he’ll either be 10/1 if it cuts up or around the same price on the day if not. Having won two grade two hurdles as well as a grade one, he definitely has the class and has won three of his 6 chases, with a second as I say in the Marsh. The concern would be in his other two chases, he has been pulled up. At 40/1 though I’ll be playing this each way and hope the race cuts up a bit!
