Three miles, five furlongs and 110 yards of stamina sapping mud and big fences.
Big prices are available on all selections with the favourite Giles Cross currently a 13/2 shot.
So our strategy should be each way bets with a bookmaker paying 5 places.
Bet 365 are paying 1/4 the odds for the 1st 5 and they offer best odds guaranteed. (Take a price and if SP is bigger you will get settled at SP)
So that's where we are betting, the what we bet takes a little more thought.
At these prices and place terms we can afford to bet more than one horse and our shortlist is…
Le Beau Bai 9/1 “Finished third in this race in 2009 and expected to be thereabouts again this year, won at the course earlier this month in testing conditions.
Any Currency 12/1 “Conditions today are ideal for Any Currency, made a solid return at Sandown earlier this month after a long break.”
As Der Fer 12/1 “Easy 3 mile winner in the mud in November, if he has the stamina for this extra 5 furlongs then he should go close”
We will likely have a little each way play on all of these, but if you prefer one horse per race then our selection is…
Chepstow 2.10 Le Beau Bai each way bet
