Betting Tip: Sizing John @ 3/1 with betvictor

With Douvan sticking to two miles, this looks a great opportunity for that horse’s ‘bunny’ SIZING JOHN to add a Grade 1 success over fences to his CV. Henry de Bromhead’s charge has now finished behind Douvan on four occasions – twice over hurdles and twice over fences, including when finishing seven lengths adrift in the Arkle at the Cheltenham Festival last time after making the running – and he faces nothing of that calibre here. What’s more, his style of running and pedigree strongly suggests he’s crying out for a step up to today’s trip with the better ground another thing in his favour.

L’Ami Serge is the shortest of the British-trained horses after his third in the JLT (2m5f), but even this shorter trip on an easier track might prove a shade too far for a horse who looks an out-and-out two-miler at the top level at least. Garde La Victoire probably would have had a say in that race had he not come down at the top of the hill but his fencing had been far from fluent up to that point, and the selection is far better in that department.
