Betting.com tips for Sunday
1.10 – Fact to File, 13/8
A lot of NR in this now, which is disappointing. Willie Mullins might be wishing he ran Gaelic warrior in the Arkle yesterday after the result but I think I’ll take Fact To File who has great form around the track and could still be improving
1.40 – Ballyburn 11/8
Ballyburn should be the one to beat here. Back down to 2m again today and is the choice of Paul Townend which is always a bonus. Take advantage of bet365’s boosted odds for this one. Slade Steel is also worth a look
2.10 El Fabilolo 2/5
El Fabiolo is a top top chaser and will take all the beating today. Won at this meeting last year and looks to cement his favouritism for this year’s champion chase. Dino blue will have to win today to have any chance for her to go to the champion chase and but could be dangerous with the mares allowance
2.45 – State Man 4/11
State Man is the horse of a lifetime and only finds the almighty Constitution Hill too hard to beat. The winner of this race last year should be too good for these horses who he beats all the time
3.20 Inothewayourthinkin 5/1
A few with live chances here. James Du Burlais had a good run in the paddy power at Christmas and with the jockey and trainer combination has to be respected however I think I’ll back Inothewayourthinkin for leading owner J.P.Mcmannus. Beaten by Gaelic warrior and yesterday’s winner of the Irish Arkle, Il Etait Temps last time out is strong form I think and could be off a lovely mark of 144. Hollow Games is also worth a shout with Jack Kennedy on board.
3.50 Magical Zoe 6/1
Tricky race but it might be worth trying Magical Zoe who was second to the smart Irish point last time out. By Your Side is another option
4.25 – Aurora Vega 13/8
Aurora Vega, the daughter of the famous Quevega has won on each of her three starts and can continue the run here. Mongibello is another horse worth looking at.
Note: Mullins does exceptionally well at this meeting every year, however, for each way options horses other than his may provide better value.
