    This afternoon (15.20) features of the biggest two mile handicaps of the year, the Gerard Bertrand Hurst Park Handicap Chase. Capeland – who was carried out last time at Ascot by Diego du Charmil – is the favourite. The following 10 will go:
    – Capeland
    – The Last Day
    – Knocknanuss
    – Diego du Charmil
    – Speredek
    – Caid du Lin
    – Marracudja
    – Vaniteux
    – Ballywood
    – Imperial Presensce

    I like Vaniteux here at 14/1. Three years ago he was grade 1 level, even upsides Douvan in the Arkle before falling. Won some nice races with a mark in the 150s, but in the last years he didn’t produce at all. Half a year ago they switched trainers from David Pipe to Sophie Leech. Since then he ran okay at Punchestown, won in France and was a good second 1-length-second behind Saint Calvados at Cheltenham. He seems to get a bit of his old form back and with this rating he should be at least a decent EW shot.

    Vaniteux 14/1 EW

    Good luck DBR.

    I’ve just got a feeling that Diego will find more today, and I’ll go with him.

    15-2 is a fair price for me, so I’ll stick with him.

    Diego Du Charmil 15-2

    With you Bobby with Vaniteux, I stuck him on the other day
    at 14s (in Pat’s ante post thread). He’s still that price, but if he has retained
    any of his old form he must have a squeak.

    That was sweet revenge for Capeland! Good to see he was certainly none the worse for last time.

    Had Capeland last time, but Diego finished so well then I plumped for him….. I am a jinx
