6. Seabass, 8/1 with Ladbrokes 10/1 with Betvictor
Colbert Station: Most jockeys believe or not are not that good at tipping winners, but AP McCoy is not most jockeys and the way he spoke about this horses credentials after his win in Ireland is a tip in itself. It would be an ideal turn around after the nightmare of last year’s race for connections to go one better this year.

Teaforthree: This horse ticks all the right boxes, the drying ground will be ideal, he jumps for fun and stays longer than the mother in law. Currently around 16/1 with most firms, expect Rebecca Curtis’s nine year old to be to close to the fore from early on in the race and with a little bit of look he will miss the carnage behind and lead the way home followed by Colbert Station and Seabass.

My advice for the race is as last year, split your stakes and back two horses, there is not much fun watching the race after your one and only selection falls at the first, if you wish to back each way choose a bookmaker who pays 5 or even 6 places or you can be guaranteed your horse will finish 7th.
