Revitalised Cue Card can thwart Conti
The impressive way Cue Card repelled all challenges at Wetherby 3 weeks ago suggests he can thwart Silviniaco Conti’s bid for a 3rd Betfair Chase at Haydock today. Conti recovered from a lack lustre Gold Cup run to win by a head from Ballynagour at Aintree but that doesn’t make him an odds on chance here.
Elsewhere at Haydock Gunner Fifteen and Staidnahanna look sound bets whilst Lucinda Russell’s No Deal can maintain the stables good record in staying events at this course.
At Ascot all eyes will be on the exciting Vautour.
Relentless Dreamer can finally fulfil his early promise and Desert Queen could leave his previous runs behind at a good price if settling.
