GHIZAO to repay faith
We have one of the crucial days of the jumps season with the Haldon Gold Cup being run at Exeter. It is crucial as it sees the first meeting of some of the better novices of the previous season against some of the older horses.
This year we have a classic race in prospect but not due to a clash of the generations, more a rematch of the cream of last season’s novice chasers. The going could be the biggest factor in finding the winner of this race. On known winning form, the “good” going points firmly towards the fav last season’s Arkle winner Captain Chris. However, the going should be similar to that encountered by GHIZAO at Aintree last April and on that day GHIZAO did not look inconvenienced. I’m expecting that GHIZAO will be fully schooled for this encounter and it must be remembered that on 2 occasions he has been superior to Captain Chris over fences including when they met at Newbury over a trip a furlong further than this when GHIZAO gave Captain Chris 10lb and a 4-length beating. At 11/4, GHIZAO looks value as I’d have him more like 2/1. As I have already nominated the horse as one of my 3-to-follow, my colours are firmly fastened to his post, and I’m on. A win for GHIZAO will see the odds of 18/1 offered by the Tote and Betfred for the Queen Mother Champion Chase quickly disappear (the 20’s available when I nominated GHIZAO last week have already gone). As such, I would suggest than you have a small antepost wager on the horse before the Haldon Gold Cup is run.
Exeter 2:50, GHIZAO, 2pts win @ 11/4 (Ladbrokes , best odds guaranteed)
Antepost wager on the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival 2012
GHIZAO, ¼pt eachway @ 18/1 (Betfred or Tote) quarter-odds a place 1,2,3.
