I think the ground may just be a bit on the good side for Native River, he does have form on it but his style is usually to make it a real stamina test for the horses in behind him. He will also likely have company for the lead in Frodon which could be detrimental to him early on battling for the lead. Champ has never lost over 2 mile 5f+ with good in the ground description, we know he has the stamina after last year. I have him 14/1 antepost and hopefully with a clear round he will be bang there.
Pricewise has tipped up Captain Kangaroo in the county hurdle, 33/1 in to 14's overnight (still 22/1 on the exchanges), wouldn't be surprised if its single figures by the off. Has some nice form lines with bumper runner up Kilcruit this time last year. Was carrying 12 stone on last few outings now handicapping running off 10 stone 2lbs.
