El Beau looks nicely treated on the pick of his form and worth a bet at 14/1 in the 3.15 at Stratford today.
John Quinn’s charge was a dual scorer over the obstacles in 2014/15 and also ran well to fonish runner-up on several occasions.
They included when chasing home subsequent County Hurdle winner Superb Story at Musselburgh off a rating of 127.
He is now able to race off 3lb lower and although disappoiting last time out at Wetherby back in December he was clearly amiss and has since been given a break to freshen-up.
Prior to that he had been in good form on the level judged on his back form over the obstacles he is weighted to run a huge race if he can put last time out’s run behind him.
Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way El Beau (14/1 bet365 – BOG)
