You could do worse than back a 100/1 shot in a 3 runner race, but I’d prefer to take on novices under those circumstances. A cat and mouse affair today at punchestown will tell us nothing about the QMCC unless one were to underperform significantly. Even then, unless it was big zeb who struggled I wouldn’t read too much into the form. I’d suggest the 4/6 available now for big zeb today would represent a greater return than the contraction of his odds for the CC should he be successful later. Therefor, the suggestion would be to go ‘short’ today and then go ‘long’ afterwards with your winnings if you do wish to back big zeb. I think if big zeb loses today we will see 5’s for the big one in march, perhaps a touch bigger.
Going for a cheeky wee double – Man Utd. and Big Zeb
Any value seekers. You could do a LOT worse than stick in a few hundred on Sizing Europe antepost for the QMCC. A Big Zeb victory is much more likely, but unless it’s very comprehensive (which I would doubt) then SE’s price won’t drift much. If SE wins, the price will half.
