Outstanding racing today, it’s difficult to know where to start. We have a busy day this end too. It’s our Christmas Party this evening. Hopefully all our trainers and jockeys will have good journeys back from Aintree & Chepstow and make it in time for the start.
Some nice winners on here in the past three weeks, I’ll bid to keep that going today although I haven’t much time to go through all the meetings.
I’m hearing Might Bite has been working near back to his best. The 2018 Gold Cup winner should have more gears than his old rival Native River over 3m around Aintree. If the going is heavy and not good to soft as reported, Native River would likely outstay him but I’m with Might Bite around this speed track.
The Betfair Tingle Creek is an outstanding renewal. Defo Du Seuil is rightly the favourite but looks short enough at odds of 7-4. Defo Du Seuil is a hold up horse and that’s not an easy thing to do around Sandown.
I’ve backed Un De Sceaux EW at 9-2. The Willie Mullins horse is 11 now but he’ll likely bid to make all and could take some pegging back. Fitness won’t be an issue and he looks sure to give it a good go from the front.
And for what it's worth, I think Andy Ruiz knocks out Anthony Joshua this evening.
