Although Present man represents a winning Bryony/Nicholls combination I’m taking the chance that things might be a tad more difficult against a wealth of talented runners at Wincanton today.
Just a Sting is very well handicapped getting 5lb from the likes of The Young Master and in terms of weight is very well treated. In terms of Each Way value though I cannot see past ROCK THE KASBAH. The Hobbs and Johnson combo came good in early season last year and was my tip for the national before being brought down mid race. He gets over half a stone from the likes of Cobra de Mai and The Young Master despite beating them easily in previous outings.
The Hobbs charge goes well fresh and represents a good betting angle for a horse who will again go for the National I reckon as he was schooled for the big race for the second half of last season.
1pt win JUST A STING 5-1 general
1pt e/w and e/w extra ROCK THE KASBAH 10-1 general
