My Tent Or Yours is my fancy for The Champion Hurdle but I have to take him on today. He’s a really good horse but I still have enough question marks over him, he’s already been beaten four times in his career form nine starts. He’s only not been favourite on one occasion and you would have made a profit backing him blind but my suspicions this time is that he’ll need the run.
The same connections have had Binocular beaten twice in this race before he went on to run in The Christmas Hurdle and The Champion Hurdle.
MELODIC RENDEZVOUS comes into this off the back of a fine performance at Wincanton three weeks ago. I think that extra fitness makes him the best bet in this race, which does look like it’s going to between the front two in the market.
I thought the prices would be nearer 6/4 My Tent Or Yours and 2/1 Melodic Rendezvous. With bigger targets along the line I cannot be backing a horse at odds-on first time out, especially as the stable aren’t in great form.
