Week 8

Week 8

10/05- This week I’ve been looking at a number of races trying to look for something I’ve missed or one who I think is a good price and has the right sort of profile that I look for in each race. The horse that I’ve settled on is Grand Paradis for the National Hunt Chase, a similar profile to Galvin from this year a lightly campaigned hurdler this season having run three times over the smaller obstacles, off the back of a single NHF race back in November. His record stands at 3 wins from 4 runs. He improved with each run this year, a good fourth on hurdles debut, he beat subsequent winner Grand Bornand of Willie Mullins on his second start. What leads me to believe he will be campaigned at this race is his final appearance back in February, where he was upped to two miles five, winning the Grade Three contest by some 13 lengths. He has a good pedigree too with his Sire also siring Dynaste who won the Ryanair and a good second to Cue Card in the Betfair Chase. Other offspring include, Diol Ker, Discko and this years Albert Bartlett winner, Vanillier. The mare is also sire of top hunter chaser, Bob and Co. I think we will see an even better horse next year over fences and at 40/1 will play this one each way.
