Time for another winning tip after a good few days of punting for us
All the talk will be of Cue Card and Coneygree but I personally think they are both there to be shot at. I think Cue Card may be venerable and although he is possibly my favourite horse in training I wasn’t happy with what I saw at Wetherby on his last start. It reminded me of the horse in the 2014-2015 season who was struggling with his breathing. His head carriage was different from last season and I just wonder if his breathing is giving him problems again. Coneygree is a beast but I think with the heavy ground it is going to be a tough ask after 16 months off the track. The one who I think is capable of overturning the front 2 in the market is SEEYOUATMIDNIGHT who really impressed me with his win at Carlisle last month. It was a 2 runner race against Bristol De Mai and they went a fair clip. His jumping was amazing, fast slick and accurate. After the race all you heard from everyone was how Bristol De Mai lost because of the ground but I think he was beaten by a horse who jumped beautifully and kept finding from the front who also would’ve preferred softer. His current handicap mark of 154 is a concern for some people but not for me. At the end of the day you are not born a 170 horse you have to earn it just like Cue Card, Coneygree and Silvinaco Conti had to in the past. SEEYOUATMIDNIGHT is having his first season out of novice company so the only way he can get to that mark is by winning races like this. I think everything is in his favour, he will love the ground (the softer the better, he will love being stepped up in trip from his last run, he will take Coneygree out of his rhythm by going from the front and I believe he will jump the field into the ground. They will try to get to him but will keep throwing in these accurate jumps. WIN.
