Invictus was injured all of last season, but has returned this year showing good strength in training. Before injury he won a fantastic 4 out of 5 races in Jump Racing.
Whether he has truely fully recovered from injury remains to be seen, but the punters seem to have a lot of faith in the horse.
Slightly more erratic (with 3 jump wins out of 9) is Our Father. It’s been a year since his last win, but if he can show anything like the form of 2011 (1st/15, 2nd/15, 2nd/13, 1st/18) then he can’t be ruled out.
If you fancy an outsider then the following horses are long in the market:
De La Bech 33/1
On Trend 33/1
Master Of The Hall 33/1
Roberto Goldback 33/1
Loch Ba 40/1
As this promotion also applies to each way bets, then betting each way on an outsider might be a good approach.
Because you’d win big for 1st, win a decent amount for a place (2nd, 3rd or 4th), and have the cover of the “falling at the last” bet.
The horse can be anywhere in the field when they fall at the last jump, so this provides a bit of a saftey net for the bet.
