Main Fact looks really overpriced at 8’s, but I’m not betting at that price, when he holds another entry on the card.
I think most of these will stand their ground, but in the off chance they don’t, I’ll go with Donna’s Diamond here. Into the veteran stages, and in a weaker race here last time, he showed signs of age catching up with him. He did run a cracker in this last year though, and in the off chance it cuts up, I’ve taken 66’s. He’s also got an entry in the other race, as well as The Eider, but it’s easier to take a chance at this price.
I like Itchy Feet here at 6/1. I was impressed with his engine at Ascot last time. He jumped terribly, but in the end alsmost won it against Dashel Drasher. I think back over hurdles he can really use his engine.
Also a little saver on Ballyoptic 15/1. He has been running a lot in grade 2 or handicaps giving weight away against his rivals. Now he is the one without penalties and getting weight.
I went with itchy feet for the winner , VTC I played Donna e.w as betfred were giving 125-1 …it’s a long shot but that’s too silly a price not to play …had a 80-1 during the week so I’ve a few shingles to throw at a silly 1 or 2
