Betting Tip: Killer Crow @ 14/1 with bet365

Nicky Henderson has won the last three runnings with Triolo D’Alene, Ma Filleule and Rajdhani Express and COCKTAILS AT DAWN, his sole representative this year, should give backers a good run for their money in a wide open renewal. He jumped well when making all in races at Sandown on his final start of last season and when reappearing at Chepstow in October, the form of which looks strong with As De Mee, Native River and Blaklion amongst the vanquished. He hasn’t run since disappointing in the Paddy Power Gold Cup, but he goes well fresh and has likely been targeted at this prize. Nico de Boinville rides and he gets a good tune out of the eight-year-old, who can be backed at 20/1 with bet365, who are paying out on five places.

In a race of this nature and with luck in running playing a massive part, it doesn’t hurt to have a couple of stabs at finding the winner and KILLER CROW makes plenty of appeal at the same firm’s 14/1. A steamer for the novices’ handicap chase on the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival only to miss the cut, his backers would have been left thinking what might have been after Empire Of Dirt, whom he had beaten into second at Leopardstown in January, won the Festival Plate. The seven-year-old has since finished seventh in the Irish Grand National where stamina proved an issue (travelled well until fading three out), and he deserves another chance back over this shorter trip and off his low weight.
