13:50 Warwick – Shantou Rock (BEST ODDS 4/7 with betfair)
Shantou Rock would be on a five-timer here if it wasn’t for an unfortunate fall in his penultimate race when well clear at the last. He’s a distance winner and has also shown good form over good to soft ground. He’s top weight, but he’s shown that he can dominate at this level and I think he’s going to take some beating for this one. It looks as though he may be a better chaser than a hurdler, which will surprise some considering that he was a pretty good hurdler. He’s a classy sort and with his trainer and jockey in such good form, I can’t see much standing in his way.
