I’ve already mentioned Reserve Tank and Slate House on The Gold Cup thread. They both had very disappointing ends to their season, but they might have better handicap marks as a result. I think come the day, they might be contenders.
Reserve Tank isn’t even quoted, but I like the 33-1 for Slate House.
Also at 33-1, is Pym. He is another who’s season ended tamely, but I know that Nicky Henderson really likes this race, so I wonder if he might just be a contender here.
Last years winner De Rasher Counter at 33-1 is my main fancy just now. He’s down a couple of pounds already after his run in The Midlands National, which looked like being the wrong race for him anyway. I’ve decided to bet him today, as I think 33-1 is an excellent ew price.
