15:15 Wetherby – Coneygree (BEST ODDS 2/1 with betfair)
Coneygree is one of my favourite chasers and it’s easy to forget that he won the Cheltenham Gold Cup as a novice in 2015. He’s been thwarted by injury ever since then, but he ran really well at Punchestown and finished third to Sizing John, one of the best chasers around. I think this race will be beyond Cue Card, who is now 11 years old. Coneygree is only a year younger, but showed great ability last season. He always jumps well and should have no problems on the good to soft ground. I’m excited to see him in action again.
