To provide a helping hand, we’ve outlined a few tips to help whittle down this year’s runners.
- 12 of the last 15 winners carried 11-02 or less
- 10 of the last 15 winners have been 8,9 or 10 years old
- Only one favourite has won in the last ten renewals and that was Vicente in 2017 and only because he also won it in 2016
- Largest priced winner was Al Co in 2014 at a whopping 40/1
So if you’re in it to win it, look for an 8,9 or 10 year old horse, on good form, weighing less than 11-02, with odds less than 40/1 but not the favourite.
So if you want to slim down your options, look for an 8, 9 or 10-year old, on good form, weighing less than 11-02, on odds less than 40/1 but not the favourite… or alternatively, forget all about this and pick a horse because you like the silks or the name of it!
