15:10 Cheltenham – Agrapart (BEST ODDS 7/1 with Ladbrokes)
At the prices and considering that there are eight runners declared for this Grade 2 contest, I like the look of Agrapart. The last time he was down to such a low official rating, he won over course and distance in a Grade 2 race. He has no problem in handling the heavy ground, which is why I would be cautious about backing a horse like Old Guard, who hasn’t shown the ability to cope with it. He has run in two Grade 1s and a Grade 3 in his last two and was well beaten, all at big prices. Conditions seem to suit more today and I think he looks primed for an each-way bet.
