Betting Tip: @ Chic Name @ 7/1 with betfair

Baywing is up 9lb for his stylish Eider win and that might not be enough to stop him as he’s clearly a strong stayer and loves it when the mud is flying. He makes more appeal than last year’s winner Yala Enki, whose hard races are mounting up, and the accident prone Wild West Wind (recent form figures of FRU).

However, there are a couple further down the weights who could have a say in proceedings, including the teenager Harry The Viking. The winner of the 4m Borders National here last season, he has shown he retains all his ability in two runs this term and he goes really well for 7lb claimer Rachel McDonald. With a feather weight on his back, it’s not hard to see him running into the places to reward each-way backers at bet365’s 12/1.

But the headline tip has to be Richard Hobson’s CHIC NAME after his commendable fifth in the Cross-Country Chase (3m6f) at the Cheltenham Festival, belying his 100/1 price tag. That was a different discipline of course but he’s got bits of form over conventional fences to suggest he is a player here, including when putting in a good round of jumping to land a decent handicap at Newbury last March. An unsuccessful mission to France followed that and he looked in need of the run when third behind Elegant Escape on his seasonal reappearance, so this is his first realistic chance of the season. With star conditional James Bowen booked to ride and claiming 3lb off his back, he looks well worth a shot at Betfair’s 7/1.
