The Silver Cup – we’ve produced a cracking podcast, a big race preview, and now it’s time for a DOUBLE FREE TIP.
The Tower has been the man in the spotlight this week providing our big race preview and featuring on the podcast panel so let’s give him the chance to get you a winner. He’s doubled up in a competitive field.
Taking the rare step of putting up two in the same race here. My major fancy is EDUARD, who has never finished out of the first 4 in his 15 career starts. He’s been beset by injuries but came back looking really well in the Stella Artois at this venue last month and, dropped 4lbs, should be bang there in this company. If he gets a clear round I can’t see him being out of the frame.
Stake: 1pt each way @ 8/1 (various)
My second in this race is LE MERCUREY for the red hot Paul Nicholls’ team. He’s a horse who, on balance of form, has to come into the mix here. Just on his last run alone when close second behind Many Clouds, he looks a major player. He has a tendency to find one too good in this type of race but certainly rates massive each way value at the prices.
SELECTION: LE MERCUREY
Stake: 0.5pts each way @ 9/1 (Bet365)
