<br>I want Kauto to win as he’s really lit up the season but my head says War Of Attrition.

Whether it was a bad race or not last year, he’s been there & done it – will jump round, acts on the course, stays, has a turn of foot so cracking value at the moment IMO. Only if the ground is heavy will I not back him and I’ll probably have a small e/w on Exotic Dancer because he loves Cheltenham.

The ground looks like it is going to be soft at best so you are going to need to stay more like 3m4f to get home and I just don’t see Kauto Star doing that especially after his awesome win in the Tingle Creek.

Racing Demon may surprise a few people but won’t stay when it comes down to it and State of Play looks very interesting but it’s all about guesswork with him as he’s never raced against anything as classy as the horses I’ve mentioned.
