MILL GREEN 28/1 generally – 0.5 POINTS E/W (6 places, 1/5 odds)
OUOI DE NEUF 18/1 generally – 0.5 POINTS E/W (6 places, 1/5 odds)
We have 2 selections in this race, both a decent prices.
MILL GREEN is way overpriced following his win at Sandown last month. He has gone up the handicap by 6lb but he pulled well clear of 3rd place and the rest of the field were 10 lengths or more behind, apart from the runner up. The ground was soft that day and he is a better horse on better ground. If he was winning a race like that on ground not in his favour, he could still be ahead of the handicapper. It is not often you will see a Nicky Henderson trained horse who is ridden by Nico De Boinville, available at 28/1, following a win. They will go a fast pace here and given he stays further it could play right into his hands. I am confident he will outrun his huge odds. E/W.
OUOI DE NEUF is another horse who is overpriced at 18/1. He finished 4th in the Greatwood Hurdle at Cheltenham in November, behind some very decent horses. He only went up the handicap 4lb and is a horse I would describe who has un-tapped potential. He went to Ascot on his last start and was a faller at only the 4th hurdle. We will never know what would have happened but every chance he could have won the race and would be much higher in the handicap. All eyes will be on the other Evan Williams trained horse, The Mack Man, but he is well found in the market. The one who has gone unnoticed is QUOI DE NEUF and with Brian Hughes in the saddle he also can outrun his huge odds. E/W.
