Sykes is very in and out these days. He has the talent to win this when right and he has a change of jockey in the talented 7lbs conditional Bryan Carver. Worth a bet EW with Ladbrokes at 12/1 first four.
Sykes EW. 12/1. 4 Places Ladbrokes
Capeland is improving rapidly and his history suggests connections believe he is better right handed. The form book bears that out to some extent, although his left handed experience has been limited.He is well worth a bet here. Caid Du Lin is overpriced and as much as I fancy Capeland, the price alone demands a saver on Caid Du Lin.
Capeland 5/2 Coral Win Only 3* NAP
Caid Du Lin. 33/1 General Win Only 1*
Welsh National tips are on a separate post (Arthur’s Gift and Virginia Chick)
*My usual confidence classification on bets is: worth a bet: I recommend you bet this: I strongly recommend a bet. This season I’ll allocate a star to each of these, three-stars indicating most confidence.
Good luck, and be careful. Don’t bet more than you can afford to lose with a smile, no matter the source of the tip.
All the best.
