Another interesting horse – as a saver for the Sun Alliance Chase – in case Denman doesn’t run – might be Percussionist, who was second in the Derby, not beaten far.

In the write-up a chase in which he came second, the race analyst reckoned he piked out when the chips were down.

Well maybe, but it’s also unlikely it would have been his main target, and not one they’d have wanted him to go all out to win. I believe he jumped well against Harmony Brig, and would have preferred better going.

At 380/1 now on Betfair, it seems worth risking £2 on. I put £3 on at 200s long ago.
